President John M. and Mrs. Linda Dunn invite you to imagine the possibilities at this year's Imagine GALA at WMed on Saturday, May 20, 2017.
The black-tie affair features an evening of fine dining, dancing, and camaraderie at the medical school on the W.E. Upjohn M.D. Campus. Guests are given the 'red carpet' treatment and are acknowledged as VIPs. Complimentary valet parking will be available and encouraged. The exclusive, signature event in downtown Kalamazoo will again feature music from the Simone Vitale Band, as well as entertainment from a group of Cirque du Soleil-style performers.
A champagne toast for Dr. and Mrs. Dunn will take place at the affair to honor President Dunn's vision that led to the medical school becoming a reality.
