CHRISTUS St. Michael Foundation Gala to Feature Car Giveaway, Benefit Cardiovascular Services


The CHRISTUS St. Michael Foundation is hosting a drawing for a Toyota RAV4 from Robbins Toyota! Tickets will be sold for $25 each or five (5) for $100. The drawing will be held at the CHRISTUS St. Michael Foundation Gala on Friday, February 7, 2020, at the Texarkana Convention Center!

Net proceeds from the 2020 Gala and drawing will benefit the Cardiovascular Services at CHRISTUS St. Michael Health System.
