The La Villita Heritage Society located in the City of San Antonio, Texas was formed in 1999. It became an exempt organization (non-profit) under section 501(c) 3 of the Internal Revenue Code in 2001. The purpose of the La Villita Heritage Society is to assist in the relief of poverty, and to promote educational and art enrichment of underprivileged youth.
The La Villita Heritage Society’s Board of Directors is an all volunteer group working to support the organization. Proceeds from fundraising events have benefited various organizations throughout San Antonio. Proceeds from this year’s events to include the “Gospel on the Plaza” and the “Soul Food Festival” will benefit the Little Church at La Villita (http://lavillita.com/church/) and the Eastside Boys and Girls Club (http://begreatsa.org/).
