SAN MARCOS, TX – Those who attend this year’s Stars of Texas Gala on Sunday, Oct. 13 will have a chance to bid on two tickets to George Strait’s final concert in Dallas, which will conclude the country music mega-star’s Cowboy Rides Away tour. The winning bidder of the tickets will also enjoy hotel accommodations.
CTMC’s Gala will take place at the Embassy Suites Hotel, Spa & Conference Center in San Marcos, and those who participate in the silent auction will also have a chance to walk away with a 5-day, 4-night getaway to Ruidoso, New Mexico, autographed Spurs memorabilia, an 11x14 framed and autographed Lady Antebellum photo and a guitar signed by Neal McCoy.

Hays County’s premiere black tie event will also feature gourmet dining and entertainment by Neal McCoy, who is returning for the second year in a row by popular demand.
This year’s Gala will honor local philanthropist Miriam McCoy and her late husband, Emmett, along with their children. The McCoy’s have made sizeable donations to CTMC through the years that help keep the hospital on the leading edge.
Tickets to the Gala cost $200 and may be purchased by calling 512-753-3687.
