Get your tickets now for an EXCLUSIVE screening of “The Long Game,” a feature film (releasing in theaters April 12, 2024) that celebrates the triumphant story of the Del Rio Mustangs, a group of young Mexican-American caddies in 1955 who wanted to play golf despite having few resources (and even created their own homemade course on bare South Texas land), and ultimately persevered competing against affluent, all-white teams to win the 1957 Texas state golf championship.

This special fundraising event is hosted by The Mexican American Bar Association of San Antonio, in partnership with Mucho Mas Media. Ticket sales will enable students from local communities in San Antonio to attend the screening for free, fostering accessibility to an inspirational story while providing important historical context and cultural awareness.

Proceeds from the event will also benefit the Pete Torres, Jr. Memorial Scholarship, providing scholarships for area college-bound students (many of whom are from underserved communities and the first in their families to attend college) and the Edward Charles Foundation for Project Película, an organization who donates tickets to school-age children living along the Mexican-American border so that they may experience the movie.

“The Long Game” is a 2023 American historical drama film adaptation of Humberto G. Garcia’s 2010 novel Mustang Miracle. The film is directed by Julio Quintana and stars Jay Hernandez and Dennis Quaid. The movie made its world premiere at the 2023 SXSW Film Festival, where it won the Narrative Spotlight Audience Award. The film is scheduled to be released theatrically in the United States on April 12, 2024.
