Yule Have a Great Time at This Holiday-Themed Gala Next Thursday – Check It Out!

Get in the holly jolly mood a bit early when you attend this event! On November 7th, the Carole and Ronald Krist Samaritan Counseling Center will host the holiday-themed “A KRISTmas Gala” that will celebrate 33 years of providing high-quality counseling to underserved and uninsured individuals and families who otherwise are not able to afford mental health care services.

Gala Chair Patricia Green will highlight this year’s Samaritan Spirit Award honorees Sister Roseanne Popp, MD, for driving the force of CHRISTUS St. Mary’s Clinic and providing vital healthcare to lower-income patients; Dr. Theodore Voloyiannis, for his innovation in robotic surgery procedures and willingness to provide care to those unable to afford surgery; and Mr. Ivan Voloyiannis, for his advocacy of mental health services in public education.

Mr. and Mrs. Claus will welcome guests to enjoy a photo booth, dancing ornaments, live entertainment and bid on curated live and silent auctions with the program by Emcee CW39’s Sharron Melton.

The mission of the Carole and Ronald Krist Samaritan Counseling Center is to help those in need to attain emotional, mental, and spiritual health through counseling, education, and professional training programs. We strive to serve everyone regardless of age, ethnicity, faith, or ability to pay. More than 150 people have graduated from the program and serve as mental health professionals around the world.

Don’t miss A KRISTmas Gala this weekend at Hotel ZaZa Houston! All ticket package purchasers will be named in special programming with the exclusion of individual ticket purchases. For information on sponsorship benefits and opportunities, please contact Mikki Donnelly at or 713-907-2883.

Sure, at Carelton Courtyard Apartments in Galveston, Texas, you’ll find all the on-site amenities and services you desire, but we know your lifestyle demands more than perks that are close-to-home. By informing you of this upcoming event, we hope to inspire you to interact with your neighbors on a deeper level and just have an all-around good time.
