A Masqued Ball Successfully Unveiled!

A Healthy Now and a Health Future was revealed on May 2 when nearly 500 physicians, alliance members and guests enjoyed Texas Medical Association (TMA) Foundation’s A Masqued Ball gala at the Omni Fort Worth, held in conjunction with TMA’s TexMed. Gala Chairs, Dr. Joe and Mrs. Susan Todd, Fort Worth, greeted guests and sponsors alike as they entered the pre-dinner receptions.

More than $300,000 was raised thanks to top patrons H-E-B, Texas Health Resources, Texas Medical Liability Trust, Baylor Scott and White Health, Cook Children's Medical Center, and Pfizer. Thirty-one additional sponsors also supported the event and nearly 60 volunteers helped with registration, silent auction and more.

After a stirring performance by Fort Worth’s own, Soprano Colleen Mallette, the foundation honored its Fort Worth Health Leaders for their collaborative efforts at creating a Healthy Now and a Healthy Future for more Texans. Fort Worth Mayor, Betsy Price, was recognized as the Individual Health Leader for her continued efforts in bringing programs that engage medicine, business and community in healthy lifestyles. Project Access Tarrant County was recognized as the Program Health Leader for its extensive collaboration to improve the health of more Fort Worthians who lack health insurance. The Broadway Tenors closed the evening with a sophisticated yet fun performance of Broadway’s best hits.

Proceeds benefit TMA Foundation and the TMA and TMA Alliance programs it supports that champion great health including: Be Wise - ImmunizeSM, 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.
