CELEBRATES THE LIFE OF DR. JOHN STEHLIN
Premiering “STAYIN’ ALIVE,” The Greatest Bee Gees Tribute Band with Members of the Houston Symphony Orchestra and America’s first Mash Up Group, “THE COMPANY MEN.”
Get ready to disco and dance the night away at The Friends of CHRISTUS Stehlin Gala! The 33rd annual gala will honor the life of Dr. John Stehlin, who loved his Foundation as much as he cherished his patients, family and friends. As a tribute to his Foundation’s never-ending fight against cancer, the 2013 gala theme is “Staying Alive!”
As an ode to the disco era, Stayin’ Alive Canada, “the world’s number one Bee Gees tribute band,” will transport guests back to the iconic age of disco. Gala-goers will keep the dance floor packed when The Company Men, “America’s first Mashup group,” perform the best dance classics combined with the newest hits! This “Modern Day Rat Pack” has quickly become America’s hottest “guy” group, interweaving hits from multiple genres such as Motown, rock, pop and today’s Top 40 – appealing to all generations.
A lavish dinner, silent auction and 3-item live auction are additional highlights of this black tie evening planned by longtime Stehlin friends and event producers, Ward & Ames.

“I have been constantly impressed not only with the CHRISTUS Stehlin Foundation’s rich legacy of transformative research, but also the tenacious commitment of foundation staff to the vision of Dr. Stehlin. A connection between this vision and the mission of our sponsoring congregations was immediately clear, as both seek not only to treat illness, but also honor the dignity inherent in every person.”
