The Integris Foundation expects more than 600 guests for an April 4 gala at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum benefiting the Paul Silverstein Burn Center.

The 16th annual event features live entertainment, dining and dancing and will honor the Integris Philanthropist of the Year, Gene Morahan, of Enid.

Co-chairs include burn physicians and spouses Dr. Paul Silverstein, Dr. Amalia Miranda; Dr. & Mrs. Christopher Lentz; and community leaders Pete and Karen Delaney.

Event proceeds will provide funding for equipment, staff and education needed to implement procedures that aid in pain management and expanded service.

“The Integris Paul Silverstein Burn Center is critical to ensuring our community is able to provide the level of care required for Oklahomans to recover from a severe burn event,” said Pete Delaney, CEO of Oklahoma Gas and Electric Co.

Among the speakers will be Dr. Gregory Walton. He is a burn survivor who beat the odds to become a surgeon at the same hospital that saved his life.

The Paul Silverstein Burn Center is Oklahoma City’s only burn center, providing care to more than 200 victims annually.
