Seton Hays Foundation announced today it plans to combine two of its largest fundraisers in Hays and Caldwell counties into one event Aug. 26.
Seton Medical Center Hays’ Seton Social Gala and the Seton Edgar B. Davis’ Taking Care of Tiny Texans Gala will be rechristened The Seton Hays Foundation’s Boots & Bling Gala 2017.
“We’re expecting over 600 attendees from around the Austin area and know it’ll be our biggest event yet—both in number of attendees and dollars raised,” said Keith Schmidt, Boots & Bling event chairman and owner of Kreuz Market in Lockhart. “I’ve been involved with these events for several years now, not because I have a lot of free time, but because I am passionate about the cause. The large number of professionals who come together to help plan, promote, and execute this gala—and the continually growing list of sponsors—just show how special Seton’s mission is and the impact that these programs have on the residents of Hays and Caldwell counties.”
Proceeds from the gala will help fund the McCoy Wellness & Rehabilitation Center at Seton Medical Center Hays, a planned rehabilitation facility that, once constructed, will help patients recover from cardiac and pulmonary issues. Proceeds will also benefit Seton Edgar B. Davis’ Care-A-Van, a project that in 2016 provided basic health services to more than 2,354 children.
The event will include a raffle for a grand prize trip to Destin, Florida, and a stay in a beachside home that accommodates up to six people. Raffle tickets are $25 each and can be purchased here.
Patrick Rose, president of Corridor Title Company, and Deeda Lovett, general manager of Community Impact Newspaper-Central Austin, will emcee the event. The gala will be held at the Hyatt Lost Pines in Bastrop. Sponsorships and tickets are available here.
