During the vascular annual meeting that celebrates science and research, the SVS Foundation’s annual Gala will take place in a museum that also honors science. “A Night at the Museum—A Celebration of Science” is set for Friday, June 21, 2024 at Chicago’s world-famous Museum of Science and Industry.

Chairs of the 2024 Gala are Michael Dalsing, MD, chair of the SVS Foundation; Bernadette Aulivola, MD, member of the SVS Foundation Board of Directors; and Leigh Ann O’Banion, MD, co-chair of the 2023 Gala.

Tickets for this annual event, which typically sell out quickly, will go on sale in March. Included in the evening are transportation to the museum, live and silent auctions, plated dinner, dancing to a DJ, and much more. “Guests will be able to visit the exhibits on the main floor, which is where the event will be located,” said O’Banion. That includes the museum’s “Yesterday’s Main Street,” the Coal Mine, “Numbers in Nature: A Mirror Maze” and exhibits on “The Great Train Story” (in the Transportation Gallery), “Science Storms,” “Extreme Ice,” “Earth Revealed,” and more. “I practice in Chicago and am no stranger to this fantastic museum,” said Aulivola. “I’m thrilled that we’ve secured this location for our upcoming Gala and I cannot wait to show it off to our Gala attendees. I am certain that this will be an incredibly fun event for all.”
