Locally famous hair dresser and drag queen, Rene Roberts, is no stranger to the San Antonio Party Elite. Rene, a fierce celebrator of Dia de los Muertos, decided to hold his first Ball at the Jump Start Theater in 2010. The event grows every year and is so popular that it is now held at the Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center on San Antonio's up and coming West Side.
Each year, the event raises enough money to provide a select group of high school seniors with a scholarship. Scholarships are named each year after a notable contributor of the local or national community who recently passed.
