San Antonio Spur great David Robinson is putting on an apron to help raise scholarship cash for local IDEA Public Schools students.
IDEA Public Schools is a network of tuition-free, Pre-K-through-12 public charter schools that serves more than 66,000 college-bound students in Texas and Louisiana. Recently, the organization announced that 100% of its seniors were accepted to college for the 15th consecutive year.
Robinson will team up May 20 with Alamo City chef Jason Dady to host “Cooking with IDEA,” a live-streamed fundraiser for graduating seniors attending the charter school network in SA.
The event will allow ticket-holding viewers to cook alongside Robinson and Dady while they prepare a meal using fresh ingredients from several IDEA farms in San Antonio. “This program means a great deal to us, because we get to personally encourage and build up these young people and give them an advantage at the next level,” said Robinson, an IDEA board member. “They are enthusiastic and hopeful, and they represent what’s good about our future.”
Tickets start at $500 and include two ingredient kits. The cooking gets underway at 7 p.m.
