Why is the Gold Star Gala being held?

AdventHealth Central Texas is hosting this event as a fundraiser to maintain, and acquire much needed new equipment for their facilities. The goal is to raise enough funding to purchase a 3D mammography machine and a Hana Orthopedic Surgical Table for the hospital.

The evening will not only feature a performance by Take 6, but will also be catered with fine dining, cocktails, raffle prizes, and both a live and silent auction. Formal attire is requested to enjoy this once in a lifetime opportunity.

You can register with Tony Mino by calling 254-519-8307, or by emailing RSVP is requested by October 13, and you can reserve individual seats or group tables.
