The black-tie affair featured an evening of fine dining, dancing, and camaraderie at the medical school on the W.E. Upjohn M.D. Campus. Guests were given the 'red carpet' treatment and are acknowledged as VIPs. The exclusive, signature event in downtown Kalamazoo again featured music from the Simone Vitale Band, as well as entertainment from a group of Cirque du Soleil-style performers.

The black-tie event benefits the medical school's student pipeline programs, which champion the biomedical science and healthcare career aspirations of underrepresented and disadvantaged youth in southwestern Michigan. The pipeline programs provide science education and enrichment with the goal of increasing diversity among youth who pursue careers in the fields of bioscience and healthcare.
