2016 GDB Will Feature
The 2016 Gentle Doctor Benefit will be held beginning at 5 p.m. April 9 at the Holiday Inn Executive Center in Columbia. The annual event is the MU College of Veterinary Medicine’s only fundraiser for student scholarships.
This year’s theme is A Night at the Ballpark, and will include a baseball-oriented photo booth, ballpark snacks, baseball décor and baseball activities. As in past years, the GDB will feature silent auctions, a fast-paced live auction, musical entertainment, appetizers and a dinner.
The gala is a long-standing tradition that supports the college’s scholarship fund for veterinary medical students. The interest from the endowment provides much-needed scholarships to incoming students each year. Two significant scholarships are awarded. Additionally, in recent years the endowment has funded $100 scholarships to each member of the incoming class to help offset the cost of textbooks.
