There are many theories about the meaning of WEBB and the origin of its name. No, it’s not an acronym, but we’ve gotten some pretty interesting theories as to what it stands for. WEBB actually got its name and unusual spelling from one of its founders. Mr. X, as we will refer to him, had an inspirational calendar featuring the Ethiopian proverb, “When spider webs unite, they can tie up a lion.” The planners were so moved by the saying that they decided to name the party WEB in honor of its sentiment. Unfortunately, Mr. X inadvertently added an extra “b” to the invitation and for some reason the misspelling stuck.
The first ever WEBB Party was held in April of 1990. A handful of friends decided to throw a spectacular Fiesta Kick off Party to benefit the San Antonio AIDS Foundation, and WEBB began its life as a casual backyard B-B-Q. In the year 2000 SAAF took over the planning of the event and The WEBB Party has since become one of SAAF’s most successful fundraisers.
We’re sure you’re wondering what happens at WEBB. Well, WEBB is a fantastic who’s who, see and be seen social event. WEBB Party has now become San Antonio’s alternative Fiesta® event and is the single largest fundraiser for the San Antonio AIDS Foundation (SAAF). It features top-notch entertainment, a cuisine tasting featuring the finest fare from area restaurateurs and celebrated chefs, open bars, music provided by guest DJs, a silent auction and a stellar crowd. The dress code is themed but “anything goes”. Most WEBB patrons dress in what we like to refer as Fiesta Glam (pretty, yet comfortable).
One hundred percent of event-night proceeds go directly into SAAF’s client services. WEBB Party 2013 will be held on Friday, April 19th at the Lambermont Estate & Events and is expected to garner upwards of 1,500 attendees. Tickets are $75 pre-sale and $90 at the door.
