2016 GDB Will Feature
Baseball-Themed Fun

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.

To learn more about the event, ways to become involved, and meet some of the students who have received GDB scholarships, please visit the website.
