President’s Gala 2018 

Saturday, Sept. 29, 2018

6:30 p.m. • Grand Hyatt San Antonio


REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN!


On Saturday, September 29, 2018, UT Health San Antonio will honor Peggy and Lowry Mays at our annual President’s Gala – An Evening of People, Purpose, Promise. This year marks our university’s 50th anniversary of service to our community, and I hope you will join us at 6:30 p.m. at the Grand Hyatt San Antonio for this momentous occasion.

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.

This year, proceeds from the Gala will establish the Peggy and Lowry Mays Patient Care Endowment. The endowment will support our Patient Supportive Care Program at the Mays Cancer Center at UT Health San Antonio MD Anderson, in perpetuity, to assist cancer patients with access to life-saving treatment and vital support services. 

While a diagnosis of cancer can be devastating, at the Mays Cancer Center we are committed to caring for our patients and their families – mind, body, and soul. Our Patient Supportive Care Program helps people along their difficult journey with cancer by providing critical support to low-income individuals, such as transportation for daily treatments, prescription drug assistance, nutritional supplements, temporary lodging for out-of-town patients, and funds to meet patients’ other emergency needs. We also provide wellness and survivorship programs to cancer patients of all socio-economic levels, helping individuals prepare for a healthier life after treatment.

We are privileged to recognize Peggy and Lowry and their exemplary service to our community. With your help, the 2018 President’s Gala will again be a spectacular evening for our community and our mission to help those who are fighting cancer. If we can assist in any way, please do not hesitate to contact us at 210-567-2508; yorks4@uthscsa.edu.
