SECC kicks off with food and fun

Emcee Chuck Cureau talks to a Chromosome 18 representative at the SECC Foood Truck Fundraiser Sept. 8.

UT Health San Antonio’s State Employee Charitable Campaign began, as usual, in tasty fashion Sept. 8. Nine food trucks serving everything from burgers to egg rolls to cupcakes were on hand to launch our annual community giving campaign.

Chuck Cureau, San Antonio Spurs in-arena host, again served as emcee and kept the large crowd of faculty, staff and students entertained.

Due to the devastation caused by Harvey across Texas, President William L. Henrich, M.D., MACP, decided to launch the campaign on Aug. 31 rather than the originally scheduled date of Sept. 5.

The SECC allows employees to provide financial support to dozens of charities of our choice that assist and empower those who are struggling during a difficult time in their life. Other agencies support animal causes, the arts, in areas of communications, global assistance and more.

Through the SECC, we have an opportunity to honor our institution’s fourth mission: to serve and engage in our community. UT Health San Antonio has a strong tradition of generously giving back, across our community, to make better the lives of men, women, children, teens and seniors, through a multitude of worthy causes.

The annual SECC is our opportunity to help make lives better for thousands of our neighbors. The goal this year is $375,000, and the campaign runs until Oct. 6.
