SAN MARCOS, TEXAS
– Central Texas Medical Center’s (CTMC) 22nd annual Stars of Texas Gala recently received a $10,000 platinum sponsorship from John and Chloe Navarrette. John Navarrette, the general manager of CenturyLink in San Marcos, is a long-standing member of the CTMC Foundation who has served as chairman and currently serves on the executive committee.
Additionally, Mr. and Mrs. Navarrette are listed as Investor Donors on the CTMC Donor Recognition Wall for more than $25,000 in giving.
“We are happy to invest in CTMC because, as our community hospital, it deserves ongoing funds to provide care and services to our community,” John Navarrette said. “The gala, in particular, has helped raise resources for several essential upgrades through the years.”
The Gala will take place on Sunday, Oct. 5 at the Embassy Suites Hotel, Spa and Conference Center in San Marcos.
Grammy Award-winning country singer Lee Ann Womack will return as entertainer for the first time since 2009 – fresh off the heels of her new album, The Way I’m Livin’, which is slated for a September 23 release.
This year’s event will honor the CTMC Volunteer Auxiliary for their years of faithful service to the hospital’s health ministry. The volunteers served 33,778 hours in 2013 and sponsored six fundraisers to raise money for CTMC. The Auxiliary is featured as the largest donor on the CTMC Donor Recognition Wall with a total of $616,000 given since 1991.
Each year, the Stars of Texas Gala supports service and technology expansions that keep CTMC on the forefront of medical technology. This year’s proceeds will benefit CTMC’s new Women’s Diagnostic Imaging Center, which will be the first of its kind between Austin and San Antonio. The new center will open at the hospital in October in conjunction with the annual “Think Pink” activities. This unique diagnostic center is a collaborative effort designed with the special needs of breast cancer patients in mind. It combines diagnostic imaging, support, surgical services and reconstruction in one convenient location.
The Stars of Texas Gala will once again feature gourmet dining, a truly unique silent auction and an opportunity to mix and mingle with nearly 500 of San Marcos’ finest.
In recent years, the Stars of Texas Gala has benefitted da Vinci robotic-assisted surgery, CTMC’s expanding cardiac services and an expansion of the Women’s Center and a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). Tickets to the Gala cost $200 and may be purchased by calling 512-753-3687. For information about becoming a sponsor for the event, please visit ctmc.org
