Event raises scholarship funds.
The 2015 Gridiron show “Bad Blood” Sept. 19 promises a satirical review of the hotly contested mayor’s race in San Antonio and other spoofs of local, state and national news.
This year’s version of the annual scholarship fundraiser will be at 7:30 p.m. in the auditorium of McAllister Fine Arts Center at this college.
The Gridiron is sponsored by the San Antonio Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists with assistance from this college’s student SPJ chapter. Local media and public relations professionals write the script and perform skits and musical parodies that lampoon politicians and other newsmakers.
Proceeds will go toward scholarships for “the best and most promising student journalists in the San Antonio region,” Michael Drudge, scholarship coordinator for the professional SPJ chapter, wrote in an email.
Advance tickets are available online for $30 through Wednesday at https://sanantoniospj.ticketbud.com/gridiron2015.
General admission tickets at the door will be $35.
