North SA Chamber Chairman’s Council member, board director and CEO of Allegiance Environmental Services Kenneth Flores’s candidacy to earn the Fiesta title of “El Rey Feo” or “ugly king” is nearing its end, and will culminate with two final events including a BBQ fundraiser and the prize drawing for a luxurious Jaguar XF.
 
Ken Flores, candidate for Rey Feo will host a Royal BBQ in the Park on Saturday, September 26, from 2:00 to 10:00 p.m. at Aggie Park located at 6205 West Ave. at Loop 410. You’re invited to enjoy a full day of family fun; and live music, DJ and a BBQ plate is included with the price of admission ($15 adults, $10 kids at the door). There is a full kids’ carnival featuring activities for every age. Purchase a carnival bracelet at $15 each per child and enjoy unlimited fun including: the Mind Winder, 100-foot slide, rock-climbing wall, fun house, bounce-house, pony rides, petting zoo, face-painting and balloon animals.
 
Grown-ups can enter to win throughout the day. Enter blind draw washer tournaments with just a $10 entry fee. Participate in the $5 raffle and purchase a chance to win an iPad, 42” TV and a YETI cooler. Get a bonus chance when you purchase five raffle tickets for $20. All concession proceeds benefit scholarships – so enjoy funnel cake, cotton candy, gorditas, wine, and Dos Equis family of beers - responsibly of course!  
 
You’ll also have another chance to enter to win a 2015 Jaguar XF. Each entry is $100 per ticket. Mark your calendar to be present for the final event of Ken’s campaign - the Jaguar raffle prize drawing on Wednesday, October 7, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Barrett Jaguar.
 
While Ken’s campaign will end in his service as El Rey Feo during Fiesta, he says the party is not the goal of this campaign. “The real goal is to support the incredible work achieved by the Rey Feo Scholarship Fund – which to date, has awarded more than $5 million in scholarships. The average award is $2,000 and covers tuition and books for very deserving young people,” says Ken.
 
Ken says the Rey Feo Scholarship program mission is very real to him. He understands the opportunities that a college degree creates for an individual. “A college education is a game changer in the life of a young person. A degree can be the difference between a minimum wage position that ensures a paycheck-to-paycheck existence or a salaried career that offers a different path – one of continuous professional development, health care and other benefits to support a family, and that allow that individual to contribute back to his or her community,” explains Ken.
 
Ken reiterates the campaign for Rey Feo is not about him or any other candidate winning a contest. “We are participating to support the scholarship program and the many thousands of young people pursing higher education. To all of you have attended campaign events, purchased raffle tickets and more - you’re demonstrating your commitment to that mission, and I salute you for it,” says Ken.
 
Ken’s campaign team is very close to reaching the financial goal of $225,000 for scholarships by the campaign deadline of Saturday, October 10.

Rey Feo was created in 1947 from the idea based on a medieval Spanish tradition in which peasants elected one of their own, a common man, to be king. The League of United Latin American Citizens Council (LULAC) Council No. 2 developed the position to raise scholarship money for deserving, underprivileged local college students. Since its inception, the program has raised more than $5 million for scholarships - books and tuition, awarded to more than 3,000 area students across hundreds of area schools.
 
Rey Feo serves during Fiesta and throughout the year of his reign as an ambassador to advance higher education and service to one’s community by visiting hospitals, schools, nursing homes, and of course, participating in Fiesta events such as the Battle of Flowers parade.

Ken is the CEO of Allegiance Environmental Services, a commercial cleaning company specializing in hospital housekeeping and janitorial services for healthcare, clinical, laboratory and surgical environments, as well as office buildings and construction clean-up. He is dedicated to serving his community, advancing education, practicing good stewardship and wellness. He is an alumnus of Mount Sacred Heart School, Tom C. Clark High School, and St. Mary’s University. He is also an active member of St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church, the North SA Chamber board of directors and the Rey Feo Consejo Educational Foundation, which supports the educational activities of the LULAC Rey Feo Scholarship Inc. program, a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization.
