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 photobooth, dancing ornaments, live entertainment and bid on curated live and silent auctions with the program by Emcee CW39’s Sharron Melton.

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.
