SAN MARCOS, TEXAS – The Central Texas Medical Center (CTMC) Foundation will present its 24th annual Stars of Texas Gala on Sunday, October 8 at Embassy Suites Hotel, Spa and Conference Center in San Marcos. Hays County’s premiere black tie event will feature gourmet dining and a unique mobile silent auction.
Each year, the Stars of Texas Gala supports service and technology expansions that keep CTMC on the leading edge. This year, proceeds will benefit the hospital’s orthopedic surgery program. CTMC is currently working toward becoming a Center of Excellence in Orthopedic Surgery, a prestigious designation that signifies an organization’s focus on improving the safety and quality of orthopedic surgical care.
“At CTMC, it is not only important to us to add new specialty care options but to expand and improve our existing service lines,” said CTMC Chief Nursing Officer Elsie Graves. “We are excited for the future of orthopedic services at CTMC, and proceeds from the gala will be instrumental in helping us achieve this prestigious recognition.”
In addition, this year’s gala will pay a special tribute to CTMC nurses who have devoted 25 years or more of service. The nurses who will be honored are: Janie Aguilar, Sharon Ash, Wendy Brown, Denise Cagle, Bobbie Finn, Cathy Forsell, Sherry McCoy, Patrice Meany, Janie Mott, Dolores Quintanilla, Vera Serrano and Julie Veidt.
This year’s gala will feature entertainment by Herman’s Hermits featuring Peter Noone. The award-winning English rock band has sold more than 60 million records, including seven gold albums.
