March 10, 2011 - Celebrated sports broadcaster Randy Galloway and his wife Janeen will once again gather with hundreds of friends at Lone Star Park to raise dollars and awareness for the ravages of diabetes. "Stars of Texas  Racing Against the Odds", has a 2011 goal to raise $3.5 million dollars for diabetes research and education.

A top-performing fundraiser for the American Diabetes Association, "Stars of Texas" offers guests the opportunity to mingle with sports and media celebrities, sample eclectic cuisine, and bid toward silent and live auction items. These items include unique travel and entertainment packages, "premier dining" gift certificates, apparel, and much more.

This year's theme will be "Betting on a Cure", with a casino-style dcor. Celebrities scheduled to appear at this year's event include some of our Dallas Cowboys, Walt Garrison, Preston Pearson, Norm Hitzges, Chuck Greenberg, and many more. Auction items includediamonds by local jeweler Curtis Miller, a Cowboys' "away game" package, a hunting trip to South America, a fishing trip to the Bahamas, a "Photo Finish" Suite at Lone Star Park, plus many more.

This is the Galloways' 13th year to serve as honorary chairmen for "Stars of Texas", which benefits diabetes research, educational programs, and most importantly, a week-long summer camp for children facing this disease.

"We were motivated to get involved with the fight against diabetes after we lost several dear family members to the disease," said Randy Galloway. "I'm both humbled and proud to say that in past years, this event has generated more than $2 million dollars to benefit the American Diabetes Association's mission to prevent and cure diabetes. We hope to reach the $3.5 million dollar goal this year."

"Stars of Texas" will be held Thursday, April 21, 2011 at Lone Star Park at Grand Prairie. The cocktail hour will begin at 5 PM and the buffet, racing and auction will be held from 6-10 PM. Valet parking is available for all guests.

Tickets are still available for "Stars of Texas", but the event typically sells out quickly. To purchase tickets or to learn more about the event, call 214.616.3868 or visit www.diabetes.org/starsoftexas.
