The Trustees of the Good Samaritan Foundation, along with Ruthie and Adam Miller, hosted the 28th Annual Pearl Ball Gala on February 25th at River Oaks Country Club. Culture Map’s Shelby Hodges writes about this glamorous and magical night that raised funds for nurse scholarships. Photos from this magical event can be seen here.

In 1951, Reverend Clyde J. Verheyden, founded what is now known as Good Samaritan Foundation. Since its inception, Good Samaritan Foundation has been focused on one ongoing mission: to increase the number of highly-trained and dedicated nurses “at the bedside” of Texas patients. Building a stronger nurse workforce in Texas consists of attracting men and women to the nursing profession and providing financial resources to become the best educated and most skilled caregivers in the world.
