Sundt’s Fiesta spirit is on display in San Antonio this year.
To celebrate Fiesta San Antonio and show our commitment to the Alamo City, Office Manager Terri Pasley and Senior Marketing/Proposal Specialist Dustin Hicks put together our first commemorative medal for the event. Fiesta San Antonio starts today and runs through April 30.
Each year, local companies and organizations create unique medals to sell or trade during Fiesta San Antonio, an event that started in 1891 to honor the memory of the heroes of the Alamo and Battle of San Jacinto. Proceeds from medal sales benefit local charities. Fiesta medal history dates to 1946, when the Texas Cavaliers, now a civic organization of more than 500 business and community leaders, created small coins to take to hospitalized children.
Terri and Dustin collaborated on the design, choosing from a selection of pre-made medals offered by the vendor they chose. Since they are already receiving great feedback, they plan to create a custom Sundt medal for next year’s event.
“As a local contractor, I thought it would be great to show our San Antonio pride by taking part in this fun community event,” Terri said. “Dustin and I put our minds together to create the medal.”
Fiesta San Antonio has become one of this nation’s premier festivals with an economic impact of more than $284 million. Fiesta is the “Party with a Purpose” and the money raised by events provides services to San Antonio residents throughout the year.
