Express News WINNER: Mission Drive-In Fiesta Medal 2018 by Selina Bonilla
WINNER: BEST SA POP CULTURE MEDAL IN EXPRESS NEWS CONTEST! Most folks who grew up in San Antonio — especially the Southside — remember going to the Mission Drive-In. That memory of piling into her dad's '86 Chevy was vivid for Selina Bonilla, a writer at SA Flavor and current graduate student at UTSA, which is why she created the Mission Drive-In Fiesta Medal!
The medal features that very black truck she'd go to the theater in, along with movie titles on the marquee that have scenes that took place in San Antonio. One dollar from every sale of the Mission Drive-In Fiesta Medal benefits P.A.W.S. (Protecting Animals Within San Antonio), an organization that Selina participated in while at Harlande!
