This year the California Medical Association (CMA) President’s Reception and Awards Gala hosted members of the CMA House of Delegates and guests for an evening of dinner, dancing and a live auction. The event raised more than $50,000 to support the public health projects of the CMA Foundation.
Held at the elegant U.S. Grant Hotel in San Diego immediately following CMA’s annual House of Delegates session on Saturday evening, the event was sold out with over 450 people in attendance. This year more than 35 medical students and residents attended. Also in attendance was the largest ever contingent of past CMA presidents (20) attending the event.
Among the big ticket items auctioned off were a trip to New York City, golfing in Scottland and a San Juan Island getaway.
A special thank you goes out to this year's sponsors: NORCAL Mutual, Union Bank, The Doctors Company, Pfizer, Cooperative of American Physicians, Mercer, The Permanente Medical Group, Southern California Permanente Medical Group and United Healthcare.
