The annual black-tie event, hosted by the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center
School of Medicine’s Class of 2008 and the Texas Tech Student Chapter of the Texas
Medical Association, will benefit Children’s Connections Inc., The Children’s Home
of Lubbock and the Texas Boys Ranch.
The charity ball will feature live music by local band Masterpeace, as well as a silent
