The San Antonio Cocktail Conference is a Houston Street Charities event. The Cocktail Conference was the first of its kind in Texas, but the concept is nothing new. In fact, there are various models across the country. But what makes the SACC different from the rest is that 100% of the profits are divided among selected children’s charities. These funds are raised through ticket sales to a variety of events that range from elaborate cocktail parties to guided tastings and educational seminars. But the San Antonio Cocktail Conference is not just an opportunity to drink. It's about learning the art and appreciation for the cocktail, while helping the children of our community. With each year’s Cocktail Conference, Houston Street Charities will continue to dedicate its profits to children’s charities. Though the majority of our funding to beneficiaries comes from the Cocktail Conference, there may be, on occasion, an opportunity to meet other modest needs of individual charities and causes. Past beneficiaries include ChildSafe, The Children's Shelter, Clarity Child Guidance Center, Food Bank of San Antonio, HeartGift San Antonio, TEAMability and Transplants for Children.

How it works

The majority of our funding to charities comes from funds raised during the Cocktail Conference, which takes place in January each year. Look for an announcement in December regarding our charity focus for SACC 2020!


Throughout the year Houston Street Charities will host other cocktail and culinary events, from urban picnics to parties that educate and entertain.
