Red Shoes Fiesta benefitting St. PJ’s Children’s Home

May 9 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Thursday, May 9 | 6-10 p.m. | San Antonio Botanical Garden

(555 Funston Pl., San Antonio, TX 78209)

In 2002, a frightened and crying four-year-old girl was brought into St. PJ’s Children’s Shelter, along with her six-year-old brother. Due to severe abuse and neglect, they had to be removed from their home. While the case manager was comforting the little girl, she noticed that the girl was wearing sparkling red shoes. When asked, “Where did you get those?” the little girl responded, “My grandma gave me these shoes to remind me that someday I am going to go home.”

Those little red shoes are our ongoing inspiration for the annual St. PJ’s Red Shoes Fiesta, and serve as a reminder that each child dreams of a special, safe place to call home. You are cordially invited to attend our 20th Red Shoes Fiesta event benefitting St. PJ’s Children’s Home on May 9, 2024, at the San Antonio Botanical Garden.

We hope that you will take this opportunity to help the children of St. PJ’s find their own “Red Shoes” on their path to a safe and happy home. YOU can help St. PJ’s make a difference by providing a Red Shoes Fiesta Sponsorship or making a donation.
