In the spirit of Fiesta, Brighton is launching their “VIVA Brighton” Campaign where people can help support our non-profit organization to replace funds lost from the cancellation of A TASTE of the Northside, an official Fiesta event. Brighton has been hosting TASTE for more than 20 years and it is the organization’s largest fundraiser. Unfortunately due to COVID-19, the event has been permanently cancelled for 2020. Funds raised from TASTE helps to provide critical funding to support physical, speech and occupational therapy services, two inclusive early childhood education centers and a team of education advocates. Together, these programs provide services to more than 3,500 children with disabilities every year. Brighton is facing a huge financial hurdle to overcome the cancellation of this event. We need your help to ensure we have the resources we need to continue helping kids in San Antonio!
