February 9: Experience our out of this world Pearl Ball with the Good Samaritan Foundation and event chairs, Allison and Geoff Leach on Friday, February 09, 2018 at River Oaks Country Club.

Since its inception in 1951, the Good Samaritan Foundation has provided financial support to a single cause: nursing excellence.

Texas is in the midst of a major nursing shortage, making the Good Samaritan’s scholarships, continuing education, and research opportunities all the more important.  We hope you’ll join us for an evening of dinner, dancing, and celebration in support of nursing excellence.
