Thank you to Mrs. Betty Irene Moore and Gordon Moore and the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation for your generous support and for all that you do for .
The theme for this year's event is "The Mystique of Medicine." It will be a black-tie masquerade gala, and attendees are encouraged to bring masks. As in years past, the event will feature a silent auction and a live auction, food from local Sacramento restaurants, wine tasting from numerous California wineries, and live music.
Proceeds from the benefit are used to support community health clinics operated by #MedicalStudents and managed by community and UC Davis attending physicians. For more than 40 years, UC Davis students have volunteered hundreds of hours each year in clinics for Sacramento's underserved communities, delivering free, culturally sensitive health care services for thousands of those that are uninsured, low-income and otherwise underserved. Such clinics offer many patients their only access to health care.
These clinics train students in delivering primary-care services while simultaneously improving access to care in underserved communities. The programs have been recognized nationally as model partnerships between an academic medical center and the community.
The clinics are seeking donations of items for both a silent and live auction. Those who have products, services or other items that can be auctioned may e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Organizers also are seeking sponsors for the sponsorship levels available. #winetasting #fundraising #studentrunclinics
