Our Charitable Focus
In 2023, the Charity Ball Association and its generous supporters donated over $1.1 million to 19 San Antonio agencies. The funds come from The CBA’s major fundraisers — the Rotogravure, the Children’s Book, Patron Contributions, Prize Tickets, and the Ball — all with the goal of enhancing the quality of life and building solid foundations for the children of Bexar County.
