CDU Spring Gala 2015
About the Spring Gala
The Charles R. Drew University of Medicine and Science (CDU) Legacy Leaders Spring Gala raises awareness of individuals – “legends”, whose life and work embodies CDU’s legacy of service through education, patient care and research. The event also raises awareness of the University’s phenomenal academic and pipeline programs that educate students and train future health providers that are as diverse as California’s population.
This year the CDU Legacy Leaders Spring Gala will honor Dr. Robert K. Ross, President and CEO, The California Endowment and Dr. Cornelius Hopper, Emeritus Vice President for Health Affairs, University of California and CDU Trustee, both of whom are legends and leaders who have supported CDU throughout its history, and to raise funds that will support current and future CDU students.
The signature event promises to be a one-of-a kind evening with special musical guest performances. We anticipate over 400 CDU friends and alumni will join us at the event to recognize legends and raise funds to support CDU students, as well as, CDU academic and pipeline programs.
