Seven-Time Grammy-Winning Artist Ronnie Milsap to Perform at CTMC's Annual Stars of Texas Gala
SAN MARCOS, TX – For nearly four decades, Ronnie Milsap has provided country music with one of its most important voices giving us songs such as “Smokey Mountain Rain”, “Stranger in My House” and “There’s no Getting Over Me.” The Central Texas Medical Center (CTMC) Foundation is extremely pleased to announce that the seven-time Grammy award winner will be the featured entertainer for its 19th annual Stars of Texas Gala slated to take place on Sunday, Oct. 9.
”We are blessed to have such a talented and successful artist perform for our signature event this year,” said Clay DeStefano, Executive Director of the CTMC Foundation. “Our guests will have the opportunity to see Mr. Milsap perform his number one hits and Grammy award-winning songs live while helping to raise awareness and funding for much-needed, expanded specialty cardiac services at CTMC.”
The 19th annual Stars of Texas Gala will be held in San Marcos at the Embassy Suites Hotel, Spa and Conference Center. Planning is well underway for this local’s favorite black tie soiree, which will again feature a gourmet meal and a silent auction with one of a kind items. This year’s Gala proceeds will benefit CTMC’s expanding specialty cardiac services.
The North Carolina born singer found inspiration in a wide variety of music early in life. Born blind, Milsap attended a school for the blind where he had classical music training. It was then that his instructors knew the young boy had the talent of a prodigy. Today, Milsap has 40 #1 hits, more than 35 million records sold, seven Grammy awards, four Academy of Country Music awards and eight Country Music Association awards.
Because of Milsap’s popularity, the event is expected to sell out quickly. Individual tickets are $200 per person and a special VIP ticket, which includes VIP seating and a meet and greet with Milsap, is available for $350 per person.
