Established in 1947, the RFS, Inc is a 501C3 non-profit, non-political organization. Two individuals are selected bi-annually for the prestigious title by the RFS, Inc. and the Consejo de Rey Feos Anteriores to raise scholarship funds. They are part of the annual Fiesta Week Royalty in San Antonio, Texas during the 3rd week of April.
Since 1947, more than $3 million in scholarships have been awarded in helping San Antonio area students to continue their higher education.
Rene “Charlie” Garza began his royal duties as el Rey Feo LXI in October 2008 and will reign throughout Fiesta 2009. The king is the Texas representative for Partida Tequila and promotes this fast-growing brand of premium agave throughout the Southwest.

In addition to Rey Garza’s career in the food and beverage industry, the king also built meaningful relationships in the community. Through an endless list of sponsorships, special event marketing and promotion, he has supported many causes that improve education, encourage diversity, create health awareness, aid the arts and enhance his Hispanic culture.
Charlie Garza and Wayne Wright
His involvement with the Rey Feo Scholarship program and his passion to support education in San Antonio began early in his life when his uncle, Nick Garza, became Rey Feo XLI. And the rest is history. Charlie committed his support for Henry Munoz in 1997 during his campaign to become el Rey Feo L. Then in 2005, Charlie was Minister of Transportation for Tom Sineni, Rey Feo LVI. In 2006 Charlie was Minister of Transportation again for Robert D. Tips, el Rey Feo LVII. In 2007 he was Night Minister for Brian Weiner, el Rey Feo LIX.
The king is married to Blanca Aldaco, a native of Guadalajara, Mexico, who is a well-known businesswoman in San Antonio and a former commissioner for the Fiesta San Antonio Commission. They have two daughters, Adriana and Marisol. Together with his court, the king looks forward to seeing you at Fiesta.
