TMAF's Roaring Twentieth Anniversary Gala

Tailcoats and Flappers Were All the Rage at TMAF’s 20th Annual Gala!

Texas Medical Association (TMA) Foundation reveled in the Golden Age of the 1920s commemorating 20 years of TMAF gala celebrations. Gala co-chairs Drs. Rajam and Somayaji Ramamurthy, San Antonio, and Mrs. Kathy Swift and Dr. Bernard T. Swift Jr., DO, MPH, San Antonio, invited guests to join friends and colleagues in celebrating TMAF’s 20th gala and the 1920s—a time of change and innovation in America. New technology, the discovery of vitamin E and insulin, modern fashion, radio and TV, jazz, mass produced cars and more—it all started in the 1920s!

The evening included a VIP guest and sponsor reception, a general guest reception and silent auction; followed by an elegant dinner, live entertainment and dancing.  

Special thanks to top patrons H-E-B, CHRISTUS Health, and Texas Medical Liability Trust. See the full list of Patrons and Sponsors! 

Proceeds from the evening’s generous donors benefit TMA health improvement programs including Be Wise─Immunize, Hard Hats for Little Heads, the Physician Oncology Education Program, the Ernest and Sarah Butler Excellence in Science Teaching Awards and the Minority Scholarship Program. Other programs benefiting from the evening include TMAF’s John P. McGovern Champion of Health Award, the Medical Student Community Leadership Grants Program and local grants to County Medical Societies and Alliances in support of health improvement projects joining medicine, business and community in a shared vision of a healthier Texas.
