Thursday, June 15, 2017 | 6pm-9pm | THe ortiz Center

AAF-CC & The Ortiz Center present a night of charity, creativity, and pizzazz.

Winners of the Big Wigs Awards held at the annual Corpus Christi American Advertising Awards in February 2017 are teaming up with local charities to compete to raise the most money. Based on the best wig and the overall presentation, the winning team will be chosen by the amount of money raised by each Big Wig that night. Last year, the Big Wigs for Charity  raised over $40,000 total for eight different local charities. Support this community-wide event by sponsoring a table with a portion going to YOUR favorite participating charity.
