May marks the celebration of our annual Santa Rita Ranch Days, a month dedicated to sharing & celebrating our story & commitment to the education that SRR was founded on!
Press PLAY to hear the story of our land and our community’s commitment to excellence in education on the Ranch! There’s a young girl named Rita, who would later be known as the Patron Saint of the Impossible, an oil derrick, and an education fund that grew higher education in Texas, just to name a few! Experience the full story in the video above.
Our history was founded on education, so we’ve made it our promise to build a brighter future, helping students lead, grow, and serve. As an important pillar of our Ranch Code Values, we learn from the land (Ranch Code No. 1) and take pride in our work (Ranch Code No. 4). These values contributed to our developer’s creation of the Santa Rita Education Fund to support our local schools. Santa Rita Ranch developers and builders are working together to donate $1,000 for each home sold at Santa Rita towards the community’s Education Fund . By the time the ranch is completed, this fund will have contributed $6 million to Georgetown and Liberty Hill ISD.
At this year’s annual Santa Rita Day event on May 27th, we will be presenting the second check from our Education Fund to Georgetown and Liberty Hill ISD. Each district will receive a $10,000, check. That’s $20,000 towards excellence in education from Santa Rita Ranch in 2017. Overall, our community will have donated $40,000 in total to both districts after this year’s Santa Rita Day celebration.
Santa Rita Days, is also about having fun along the way. The celebration of our story and commitment to education ends with a big splash down the Big and Lil’ Dip as Santa Rita Day marks s the annual opening weekend of the water slides. Join us for all the fun this MAY! We can’t wait to see you soon.
