You’ve reached the San Antonio chapter of the Society for Professional Journalists, the oldest organization representing journalists in the United States. We host area networking events and workshops and put on a large, annual fundraiser called Gridiron, an SNL-style political satire show that raises money for scholarships for local student journalists.
Speaking of our annual major fundraiser, Gridiron 2020: Socially Distant was a success. Thank you!
With novel coronavirus surging and so many people running out of stuff to binge watch, we have decided to offer a Director’s Cut edition of Gridiron 2020: Socially Distant with new skits, uncensored songs and more performances sure to raise eyebrows.
With a continuing healthy respect for COVID-19, we are still virtual — and ready to premiere our new version at 7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 18. Wait until you see it! Tickets are $20 each; VIP tickets are $30.
Our group of journalists-and-communications-experts-turned-amateur-thespians turned in another stellar performance (or so we let them think — encouragement is a good thing) so if you didn’t get to see it in November, here’s your chance! And if you did get to see it, spring another $20 to see this longer version with some unvarnished bits.
As usual, we had some cool cameos — nope, no hints!
You just never know what you’re going to see in our rowdy, sometimes a little bawdy, but always in jest, show. You will be entertained! Buy your tickets here.
All fun aside, the money we raise with Gridiron funds one of the most important parts of our mission: supporting and encouraging the next generation of truth-tellers. Click on the scholarships tab on the home page and you’ll find profiles of current and past scholarship recipients. We’re proud of these young people and believe you will be, too.
