Ten Days of Giving to Benefit SAY Sí
Ten days of giving benefiting SAY Sí launches with the Bohanan’s tree lighting. ‘Tis the season to enjoy candy canes, bright lights, merry tunes and festive trees, but what would the holidays be without a festive range of classic cocktails? Join Bohanan’s Prime Steaks and Seafood and Bohanan’s Bar on Tuesday, November 29, from 5:30-7:30pm, as Executive Chef and Owner Mark Bohanan and Daytime @ Nine’s Esteban Solis and Sinclair Broadcast Group invite the community to light the tree in celebration of the season. Guests will be dazzled by over 34,000 LED lights along Houston Street, all complementing Bohanan’s Texas sized Christmas tree adorned with beautiful handmade ornaments by the talented young artists of SAY Sí. The perfect way to get in the spirit of the holidays is to come to the annual lighting of a festive tree in the courtyard at Bohanan’s. The 16-foot tree is covered with ornaments individually crafted by the talented middle and high school aged students at SAY Sí.
Kicking off the day before the tree lighting on November 28, the Ten Days of Giving will feature a different cocktail each day for 10 week days in Bohanan’s Bar. The profits from Ten Days of Giving benefit SAY Sí, a tuition-free national award winning multidisciplinary arts program that assists youth in the development of artistic and social skills in preparation for higher educational advancement and professional careers. SAY Sí accepts diverse students from all areas of San Antonio, but first priority is given to student from inner-city schools and low economic households.
