2013 Gala Proves to be a Roaring Success
On May 17, nearly 500 physicians, alliance members and guests, statewide community leaders and corporate sponsors enjoyed Texas Medical Association Foundation's Roaring Twentieth Anniversary Gala, raising more than $360,000. Held in conjunction with TMA's TexMed, the annual event supports TMA's health improvement campaigns including Be Wise- Immunize, the Minority Scholarship program and more.
Gala Co-chairs, Drs. Rajam and Somayaji Ramamurthy and Dr. Bernard T. and Mrs. Kathy Swift, all of San Antonio, led the successful event which included pre-dinner guest receptions, silent and live auctions, seated dinner and a Make-A-Difference drive, which raised more than $34,000 for TMA's Hard Hats for Little Heads thanks to an anonymous donor who matched the first $10,500 donated and the 40 donors who generously made gifts and pledges. TMAF thanks these donors on page 36 of the November Texas Medicine.
Top event sponsors included H-E-B, CHRISTUS Health, Texas Medical Liability Trust, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas, and Texas Medical Association Insurance Trust.
