CORPUS CHRISTI - For the past 26 years, The Communities In Schools of the Coastal Bend has worked to reduce the student dropout rate by delivering and coordinating campus-based social services in Corpus Christi and the surrounding area.
From a modest beginning of three schools, CIS now provides leverage and coordinates the delivery of school-based social services in 33 schools (Pre-K through Senior High) through partnerships with nine independent school districts and one private school in Nueces, San Patricio, Jim Wells, Kleberg, Aransas and Brooks counties. CIS has provided comprehensive case management services to over 56,000 students and their families since its inception.
On Saturday, March 8th, Andrews Distributing will honor CIS by hosting the 4th annual 80's Mega Party, featuring a performance by the Spazmatics. The event will take place at the Andrews Distributing Warehouse (254 Junior Beck Drive) from 5:30 PM - 10:30 PM. Dinner will be served at 6:00 PM with the band taking the stage at 7:30 PM.
Individual tickets may be purchased for $50 each and everyone who attends must be 21 or older. And in case you're wondering, 80's dress is desired, but not required!
