HCMH Friends of the Hospital have organized biennial galas since 1987. More than 150 of our Friends (volunteers) begin planning this signature, black-tie, affair months in advance. Many of our Friends put in most of their hours setting up and decorating the tents the week before the gala and continue working during the event by selling raffle tickets, showing patrons to their seats, directing traffic or assisting in other ways. The gala is preceded by a brunch for those who wish to support the hospital at an earlier time of day. The success of these events and the generosity of the community have allowed our Friends to give over $2.1 million to Hill Country Memorial. Recent projects include the ICU, digital mammography unit, Cancer Resource Center and angiography equipment for both cath labs and transitioning the hospital from all semi-private to single-patient rooms. We hope you will join us by volunteering at our next event!
