Cancer Society planning big ‘Starlight’ gala
June event will be biggest ever
By SUSAN FLYNT ENGLAND
Starlight in the Tropics — it may just be the social event of the year. And it will benefit the lives of cancer patients and their families in Comal County. The third annual American Cancer Society (ACS) gala will be June lh and it’s shaping up to be bigger and better than ever.
New facets will be added to the gala this year, said 1995 Starlight Gala Co-Chair Linda Gabbard Complimentary beer, wine and favors will be included. The dinner will be seated rather than buffet. At the gala will be a “Memorial Garden," a garden setting where guests can make an honorarium contribution
A putting green will be another fun addition to gala festivities At the green would-be golfers can buy tickets for a drawing when they can win golf spoits related prizes
Also new this year will be a Coleman cooler for each couple filled with Schhttcrbahn tickets, coupons and other goodies. The coolers are courtesy of the Coleman Co.
The gala will be a formal event as it has in years past. "We wanted it to be a formal thing because there aren’t many iii town,” said Gabbard. The Twilight Band will play a variety of music for dancing.
The silent auction will be a highlight of the gala Revelers bid competitively on items donated by local businesses ranging from merchandise to travel packages, said (iabbard.
"We’ll do gift boxes again, since they were such a success last year,” she said. Inside the surprise boxes are items from $65 to I IOO in value. The boxes sell for $50. "All of the boxes are tilled with donations from local merchants," said Gabbard.
The point behind all of this merriment is to raise funds for a very serums and very worthy cause, tile battle against cancer.
The Comal County ACS and the Starlight Gala do much to help that cause "The first year we raised over $8,300 and it was kind of a surprise to everyone,” said Gabbard
I ast year the gala’s earnings almost doubled $ 15,500, said Gabbard.
"We won an award through the Cancer Society because our fund raising was so successful," she said.

Doyle Krueger sells New Braunfels — home by home. And he does it so well that he is the Texas Realtor of the Year. That’s the highest honor the Texas Association of Realtors (TAR) grants.
Krueger, founder ofTowne & Country Realtors, was taken by surprise last Sunday when he was chosen at the TAR Spring Meeting in Austin. “It was very much a sur-prise,” said Krueger, “when they said ‘and this year’s recipient is from New Braun-fels’ that’s the first indication that I would be receiving the award."
Krueger started his real estate business in his father's lumberyard, called R&K Lumber. "In 1970 I organized my own business and we started in Landa Plaza Shopping Center,” said Krueger.
He and Tommy Zipp became partners in the rrud-70s and moved to their present location at 300 Landa in 1978. The two have been partners for more than 25 years. Their secret for such a long and happy working relationship — "We have common ground and high values and we believe in the same ethics," said Krueger
Selling real estate in the city of New Braunfels is a pleasure, said Krueger.
"I think people want to live in New Braunfels," he said. "Our business climate is good Our school systems are good It’s a good environment to live in.”
Can New Braunfels retain those good small town values in the face of tremendous growth? "Yes, we can maintain those values if we keep control of how we’re growing," said Krueger
In fact, New Braunfels needs to grow if it will prosper. "We can’t close the doors or feed on ourselves internally," he said. "We’ll have to continue to grow to keep everything vital, everything from our business and our schools to our quality of life ” «*»d Kruever.
The Texas Realtor of the Year award is based on civic involvement and contributions to the real estate industry as a whole, said Krueger. His list of contributions to New Braunfels and local honors is long — 1981 lessening Award; Chairman of the Board at McKenna Hospital, past president of the Greater New Braunfels Chamber of Commerce, New Braunfels Wurst Association and Sophienburg Museum Association; and Sesquicentennial Commission Steering C ommittee, to name just a few.
Krueger w as president of the TAR in 1990, after holding several regional positions.
He served on TAR committees including the Budget and Finance Committee He chaired the TAR Legislative Committee and Political Affairs Sub-Committee.
Locally Krueger was president of the New Braunfels Board of Realtors in 1981. He was honored here twice as Realtor of the Year — both in 1975 and 1986.
Krueger and his wife Roxolin have two children; a son, Steven, living iii Dallas, and a daughter, Katherine, who lives in Plano with her husband Kyle.
