Honoring Lacie and Joe Gorder

If you would like to donate to the endowment, please the Gala donation page.

On Saturday, September 23, 2017, UT Health San Antonio will honor Lacie and Joe Gorder at our annual President’s Gala – Passion, Purpose, Promise. We hope you will mark your calendar to join us at 6:30 p.m. at the Grand Hyatt San Antonio.

Each year, the President's Gala provides valuable support for our university's mission to make lives better through education, research, health care, and community engagement. Our community role is to educate a diverse workforce of health care providers and scientists; engage in research to improve health; provide state-of-the-art patient care; enhance community health awareness and practices; address health disparities; and serve as the health safety net for San Antonio and South Texas’ most vulnerable populations. Lacie and Joe Gorder, advocates of public service and giving back to their community, embody our university's mission to make lives better. We are privileged to honor them.

Proceeds from the Gala will establish the Lacie and Joe Gorder President’s Endowment in Heart Disease Research, which will support pediatric and adult heart disease research programs at UT Health San Antonio in perpetuity. Heart disease is the number one killer of adults in Texas, and each year, nearly 4,000 Texas children are born with a congenital heart defect. 

While the impact of heart disease is staggering, advances in research are improving the prevention, early detection, and treatment of heart disease in adults and helping more infants with congenital heart disease survive to adulthood.  Our physicians at UT Health San Antonio are proud to be the leading cardiovascular health care provider for the 39-county South Texas region, which includes 13 counties that are among the most economically disadvantaged in our country.

Please consider joining us for this festive event, which will include dinner and dancing. You may reserve individual seats for $200 each or table sponsorships starting at $2,500 online, or you may call 210.567.2028 should you have any questions.

I look forward to seeing you on September 23rd.

William L. Henrich, M.D., M.A.C.P.
President and Professor of Medicine
