SVS Gala

SVS Gala to Support the Foundation

This year’s Vascular Annual Meeting will have a new and elegant air about it, with the introduction of a Gala to benefit the SVS Foundation. It is replacing the traditional President’s Reception, at the request of SVS President Michel S. Makaroun. He wants an event to not only celebrate with colleagues but also to benefit a cause close to his heart, the SVS Foundation.

Tickets are $250 each, of which $150 is a tax-deductible contribution to the SVS Foundation’s general fund, the Greatest Need Fund.

The Gala will be held Friday, June 14, at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center, the site for VAM. The evening will include:

• A Silent Auction, in which any member (or friends) can participate via an online portal through the            duration of the event. The Silent Auction will open several weeks before the meeting.

• Cocktails and dinner.

• A program including entertainment.

Many of the details are still in the planning stages but the link to purchase tickets should be available in January as well as the opportunity to donate silent auction items.
