Lubbock City Lights is a charitable event organized by the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center School of Medicine first-year class. Every year, philanthropic events are held to directly benefit local charities. By giving back to the community in which we are being trained as physicians, the first-year class of the School of Medicine hopes to share in the spirit of selfless service and charity that defines the medical profession.
Since 1997, the TTUHSC first-year medical school classes have been proud to host the Lubbock City Lights charity ball. As of our 20th anniversary, this event has raised more than $1,000,000 for local charities. Every year, Lubbock City Lights provides a cause for the Lubbock community to come together and support one another.
In 2017, the Class of 2020 will host the 20th Annual City Lights Charity Gala & Casino Night on Friday, April 21st, 2017, at the Overton Hotel. All proceeds from both events will benefit the Free Clinic at Lubbock, the Boys & Girls Club of Lubbock, Ronald McDonald House of Lubbock, and Catholic Charities Diocese of Lubbock.
