With each passing year, the Friends of the Hospital Galas grow more successful. In 2013, Gala XV raised record proceeds of $620,000.
Gala XV: The Image of Success was held on Saturday, October 19, 2013 at The Lodge Event Center at Country Inn & Cottages, owned by Jeff and Amy Mazurek. With nearly 850 guests in attendance, the night was one to remember. A beautiful evening and venue, delectable food, a spectacular variety of auction items, great company, and an award winning musician made the night unforgettable.
Proceeds from Gala XV are helping with the purchase of a new CT Scanner for Hill Country Memorial. It’s been called “the scanner that has it all” – the computerized tomography scanner was just approved by the FDA last year. It significantly lowers the patient radiation dose all while offering faster speed and higher resolution than ever before possible in one machine. The cost of the scanner, including staff training and minor renovations is $1.3 million.
Thank you to the many underwriters, volunteers, auction donors and buyers, and all who attended.
