Team TMAF makes Going Gold for Great Health a Winner!


TMAF 2012 Gala   

On May 18, nearly 500 physicians, their spouses and guests, statewide community leaders and corporate sponsors enjoyed an Olympic-sized celebration at Texas Medical Association Foundation’s 19th annual gala, held in conjunction with TMA’s TexMed. Gala Co-chairs, Dr. Walter F. and Mrs. Candace Evans and Dr. Deborah A. Fuller and Kevin D. Broadway, all of Dallas, mixed and mingled with guests and sponsors alike during the pre-dinner guest receptions while perusing the foundation’s silent auction representing gold, silver and bronze level treasures. 

TMAF’s Dallas Health Leaders, Fredye Factor and Sarah Losinger were recognized for their ability to bring the talent and resources of medicine, business and community together to help local and statewide health related not-for-profits reach more Texans in need. 

After a rousing live auction and Fund-a-Need “paddles up,” which raised money for TMA’s Hard Hats for Little Heads, A Hard Night’s Day, of Dallas, kept guests grooving to favorite Beatles tunes until the doors closed!

Proceeds benefit TMA Foundation and the TMA and TMA Alliance programs it supports that champion great including: Be Wise - Immunize, Hard Hats for Little Heads, Ernest and Sarah Butler Awards for Excellence in Science Teaching, and TMA's Minority Scholarship Program. Final gala results will be released later this summer.
