Dear Friends

We are delighted to have chaired UTMB’s 125th Anniversary Gala on Saturday, May 21, 2016. The theme Milestones Gala: 125 years - The Best is Yet to Come highlights UTMB’s long and distinguished history as well as its exciting future. The evening honored UT System Chancellor William McRaven and allowed us to celebrate the philanthropic legacy of the following very generous families and foundations that have supported UTMB’s ascent from great to truly exceptional:

The Sealy & Smith Foundation
The Moody Foundation
The Harris and Eliza Kempner Fund
The Cynthia and George Mitchell Foundation

Your generous support of  $3.7 million towards the 125th Anniversary Milestones Gala will enable UTMB to advance its mission of providing excellent health sciences education, cutting-edge research, and the highest quality patient care. Those gifts have created 19 new scholarships and faculty endowments that will help us recruit and retain some of the brightest minds in academic health care.

Your remarkable generosity represents a crucial investment in UTMB—and a future of better health for the people of Texas. We are grateful for your philanthropic leadership in supporting our efforts and for your faith in our mission of excellent research, education and patient care.
