Texas Scottish Rite Hospital's Treasure Street 2011


The 16th annual Treasure Street, signature event of Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children (TSRHC), will serve as TSRHC’s official 90th birthday party on Thursday, October 13, 2011. Under the leadership of 2011 Treasure Street chairmen, Carolyn & Karl Rathjen, M.D., the highly anticipated evening will include a variety of celebratory activities and feature a live performance by Grammy award-winning singer Lee Ann Womack. This is an annual charity event that you don't want to miss!

To help celebrate TSRHC’s rich history, President and Mrs. George W. Bush will serve as honorary event chairmen. TSRHC was fortunate to have the Bush’s serve as honorary chairmen of the hospital’s 75th birthday celebration in 1996, and is honored to have them involved again. Dodge Carter is the 2011 Treasure Street Board Chairman, and Margaret Carter and Harold Carter are the Honorary Board Chairmen. Susan and Stephen Butt and Betsy and Richard Eiseman, Jr., are Treasure Street event co-chairmen elect.

Treasure Street will take place under a large, climate-controlled tent on hospital grounds to accommodate the more than 1,200 attendees expected to attend. Guests will enjoy various food offerings, bidding in the silent auction, and a “90th birthday toast” complete with cake and champagne. Texas-born singer and songwriter Lee Ann Womack will entertain the crowd with a special performance.

New to this year’s event, Heritage Auction Gallery, the world’s largest collectibles auctioneer, will host an online auction as a prelude to the event, with proceeds benefiting Treasure Street. Items such as a Verdura Maltese vintage cuff, a one of a kind Victory motorcycle and Miranda Lambert concert package, complete with backstage passes, will be featured. Online bidding is currently open at www.ha.com/treasurestreet and ends Sunday, October 16.
