Columnist and civil rights advocate Carlos Guerra has agreed to endow a scholarship in his name for the Texas A&M Kingsville Communications/Theater Arts Department so that South Texas kids can get a boost with their education.
To help raise money, a dinner is being hosted in his honor at 6:30 p.m. Friday at El Tropicano Riverwalk Hotel, 110 Lexington Ave. The evening will include dinner, entertainment and a silent auction.
Guerra graduated from Texas A&I University, which is now Texas A&M Kingsville.
Tickets are $100 for adults and $50 for students. For more information, to reserve tickets or make a donation, click here.
