Sun’s out, so get your guns out. It’s time to start practicing for the Clays for Cardio Shoot-Out benefitting the Cardiovascular Foundation of Southeast Texas.

Founded by Dr. Rudy Sotolongo, the foundation was inspired by what principal investigators learned from more than 100 clinical trials over the past 20 years at the Southeast Texas Clinical Research Center (SETCRC). Those trials evaluated both medical treatments and devices designed to improve cardiovascular outcomes.


The Junior League of Beaumont is set to host its newest fundraiser, Dancing with the Stars, on Thursday, March 2. Come dressed in your best cocktail attire for a night of dinner and dancing. Guests will be entertained by Southeast Texas celebrities as they perform dances choreographed by the premier dance studios in the area.

Tickets are available for cocktails and the show ($25) or for a sit-down dinner starting at $100. They can be purchased online at juniorleaguebeaumont.org. Cocktail hour starts at 6 p.m. and the show follows at 7 p.m.
