Pat Jackson, a longtime community volunteer in Kaufman, was honored last month at the virtual Black Tie Ball, which raised funds for Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Kaufman.

Guests gathered virtually for the first time at the annual Black Tie Ball held on Saturday, Nov. 7. Through sponsorships, donations, silent auction and raffle tickets, guests generously raised more than $60,000 to support Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Kaufman.

Co-chaired by Kimberly Bramhall and Laura Melton, proceeds from this year’s Black Tie Ball will be used to support mobile health outreach in Kaufman andthe surrounding communities for those in need.

The event also paid special tribute to Pat Jackson and her work in the community through the years. Since its inception, the ball has raised more than $1,150,000 for essential health care services at Texas Health Kaufman. If you would like to support mobile health outreach, visit TexasHealth.org/blacktieball to make a donation or sponsor a mammogram.

Texas Health would like to thank 2020 event sponsors including Brashear Family Medical, CareFlite and Genesis Anesthesia.
