Christus Gala 2024

41st Annual CHRISTUS Gala • April 20, 2024
With Entertainment by The Goo Goo Dolls

We are thrilled to announce an unforgettable evening of entertainment and philanthropy at the 41st Annual CHRISTUS Gala, set to take place on April 20th. This year, we’re bringing together a spectacular blend of legendary music and community recognition that you won’t want to miss.

An Intimate Performance by the Goo Goo Dolls: Prepare to be captivated as the iconic Goo Goo Dolls take center stage at our Gala. With a stellar career over three decades, the band has sold 15 million records, received four GRAMMY® Award nominations, and topped the charts with 16 number-one and Top 10 hits. Their timeless tracks, such as the seven-times-platinum hit “Iris,” continue to resonate with audiences of all ages. The Goo Goo Dolls’ performance is set to be a highlight of the evening, continuing our tradition of providing unparalleled entertainment.

Honoring Philanthropist Gisela Houseman: In addition to the musical enchantment, we are proud to honor Gisela Houseman, a remarkable businesswoman, and philanthropist whose generosity has impacted Southeast Texas, particularly in playing a pivotal role in bringing the recently-opened CHRISTUS Hospital – Orange facility to life by generously donating the land on which it was built. Named in her honor, the 20-acre Gisela Houseman Medical Campus is a beacon of health care in the Orange community, offering a wide range of services, including 24/7 emergency care, extended stay units, diagnostic imaging, and a dedicated women’s center. 

The evening will celebrate Gisela Houseman’s exceptional contributions and a testament to the CHRISTUS mission of extending the healing ministry of Jesus Christ. Join us in supporting this cause and recognizing a remarkable individual who exemplifies compassion and dedication to bettering the lives of others.

A Unifying Celebration: We invite you to be part of this unforgettable night. From the sophisticated cocktail hour to the gourmet dining experience and the intimate concert, every moment is designed to create lasting memories. Past Gala lineups have featured treasured artists such as Keith Urban, James Taylor, Reba McEntire, Don Henley, Aretha Franklin, and most recently, Wynonna Judd. With this year’s event promising to uphold the same standard of excellence.

Your presence at this year’s Gala will support our ongoing efforts to acquire life-saving equipment for the CHRISTUS Southeast Texas Health System. It’s an opportunity to enjoy an exquisite evening while contributing to a noble cause.

We can’t wait to celebrate with you!
