Puttin’ on the Ritz—Celebrating the Remarkable Journey
Saturday, October 15, 2011
The Friends of the Hospital began the very first Gala in 1987 and contributed more than $50,000 to purchase a mammography unit. Last year, Gala XIII, The Sky’s The Limit, raised a record-breaking $414,000 net to purchase angiography equipment for the existing catheterization lab and a second lab added in early 2010. Gala XIII was hosted by John and Marilyn Thomas, owners of Wildseed Farms.
Patrons dined, danced and bid on auction items beneath a star-lit sky. Contributing to the gala’s success was an exceptional number of underwriters and an extensive variety of auction items from across the world. Outstanding generosity from the community has made it the most successful gala to date.
Make a contribution to Gala XIV.

A brief history of Grapetown School (#4 on the driving map, located on Old San Antonio Road): Built in 1884. Teacherage in 1887. Consolidated in 1949. One of four schools which still has the original teacherage, the house where the teacher lived. This limestone two-room teacherage was built in 1887, and later a frame kitchen, storeroom, and smokehouse was erected. It was used until 1949 when Grapetown School District was consolidated with Rocky Hill School District as part of the rural school consolidation in Texas.
