For SVS Foundation Gala, prepare to return to the Roaring 1920s


Attendees at the 2023 SVS Foundation Gala will be taking a trip 100 years back in time—to the Roaring Twenties and Prohibition. 

The “Great Gatsby Gala” is set for Friday, June 16, during the Society for Vascular Surgery’s Vascular Annual Meeting (VAM). The “Surgeons’ Speakeasy” will be open for special Prohibition-style cocktails, with flappers and their elegantly clad escorts recreating F. Scott Fitzgerald’s tale of mysteriously wealthy Jay Gatsby and Daisy Buchanan on Long Island in the madcap, music-filled era of the 1920s. 

This year, the SVS Foundation will offer special early-bird tickets for the “Gatsby Gala,” which will go on sale soon. 

Meanwhile, SVS members can turn festive season shopping at into a donation for the SVS Foundation. For those who have designated the Foundation as their “smile” organization, the retail giant donates 0.5% of every eligible purchase to it. 

These donations aren’t restricted to the end of the year. Every purchase that starts on “smile,” garners contributions to the SVS Foundation.
