Book your trip to the Roaring Twenties early, and save some money, perhaps for auction items. Early-bird ticket sales for the Society for Vascular Surgery (SVS) Foundation’s “Great Gatsby Gala,” to be held at the 2023 Vascular Annual Meeting (VAM), have begun. Tables of 10 will be available for $5,000, $7,500 and $12,000.
This year’s Gala will transport attendees to the 1920s and the Jazz Age, the setting for the classic F. Scott Fitzgerald tale of mysterious millionaire Jay Gatsby. The “Gatsby Gala” will be held the evening of June 16 and will include the Surgeon Speakeasy Cocktail Reception, dinner, entertainment, live and silent auctions, and dancing. All proceeds will benefit the SVS Foundation and its efforts to fund the future of vascular health.
Individual ticket sales will start at $500, beginning Jan. 20. This year, the Foundation is pleased to make a limited number of tickets available for young surgeons. “All of us involved in planning the Gala know that our young surgeons would probably find it hard to swing a $500 ticket,” said Gala Co-Chair Leigh Ann O’Banion, MD. “But as the future of the specialty and our Society, we want them to participate in this celebration of all things vascular.”
Besides general sales, the SVS is offering a number of sponsorship opportunities and table ticket levels.
