SAN MARCOS, TX – Enjoy an unforgettable evening and contribute to a remarkable cause by attending this year’s Stars of Texas Gala, featuring gourmet dining, a unique silent auction and entertainment by country star Neal McCoy. The event will take place Oct. 7 at the Embassy Suites Hotel, Spa and Conference Center in San Marcos. Tickets to the Gala cost $200 and may be purchased by calling 512-753-3687.
By participating in the event’s silent auction, you could walk away with a dinner and wine pairing for 10 along with five one-night suite stays at Embassy Suites, a $1,000 Visa gift card, accommodations for a getaway to Ruidoso, New Mexico, and valuable sports memorabilia. A four-day, three-night stay in a river-side New Braunfels condo, paired with a gift certificate to Myron Steakhouse, will also be up for grabs. More auction items can be viewed by visiting www.facebook.com/ctmcstarsoftexasgala.
The gala is the premiere black-tie event in Hays County, and this year will honor local entrepreneur, developer and philanthropist Terry P. Gilmore, whose vision 20 years ago to embark on a new fundraiser for CTMC is still successfully supporting service and technology expansions that keep the hospital on the leading edge. This year, proceeds from the Stars of Texas Gala will benefit CTMC’s new da Vinci robotic surgical services. The $2 million investment is the first of its kind in Hays County and provides a minimally invasive approach to surgery that goes beyond the limits of the human hand.
In recent years, the Stars of Texas Gala has benefitted CTMC’s expanding cardiac services, a new chest pain center, an expansion of the Women’s Center and a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). To become a sponsor or donate an auction item, visit ctmc.org, or e-mail CTMFoundation@ahss.org.
