Community Bank Regional President Announces Virtual Gala in Pasadena, Texas
Tom Watson, Foundation Board Chair and Regional President of Texas Citizens Bank, made the presentation to the Board of Trustees. He opened the ceremony with these remarks:
“This Gala with a Twist is a chance for you to skip the fancy dinner and attire, and focus on what matters most … meeting the needs of our students. This Gala ensures that 100 percent of all contributions will benefit our students. That’s because there is no actual event. We’re hosting a Virtual Gala — innovative fundraising and online engagement, with no overhead or expenses … It’s a Gala with a Twist!
There are many different levels and way for individuals and companies to support our fundraising. I am pleased to announce the Foundation already has commitments totaling $50,000 toward our goal of $400,000. I want to thank our Title Sponsor, Community Hospital Foundation; and our Platinum sponsors: LyondellBasell, Connie Valerius, Rusty and Brenda Hellyer, Kevin and Teri Crawford, Kirby Corporation, and Texas Citizens Bank.
Please visit our website and join us to make this our most successful Gala in San Jacinto College history.”
The Foundation Board was in attendance and Watson thanked them for helping launch this campaign. He also thanked Chancellor Hellyer, Ruth Keenan, and the foundation staff for all their work on the launch.
