Charles R. Drew University of Medicine and Science (CDU) will host its 4th Annual Legacy Leaders Spring Gala—Honoring Legends, Championing Our Mission— on Thursday, April 14, 2016 at The Beverly Hilton Hotel, 9876 Wilshire Boulevard, Beverly Hills, California 90210. The reception starts at 6 p.m.

The Annual Gala pays tribute to individuals who have helped CDU fulfill its mission to train healthcare leaders to provide care with excellence and compassion. This year, the Gala will honor lifelong South Los Angeles Activist Nola Carter and CDU Trustee Emeritus Robert Tranquada, MD, a leading founder of the Watts Health Center.

Dr. David M. Carlisle, President and CEO of CDU said of the honorees: “Both Dr. Robert Tranquada and Nola Carter have demonstrated an unwavering commitment to expanding healthcare access in South Los Angeles. CDU would not be where it is today without their tireless support. The Gala is one way we hope to show our appreciation.”

The evening will include the Jazz Marlonius Quartet followed by performances by legendary recording artist Eloise Laws and R&B singer Jesse Campbell, best known for serving as a contestant on Season 2 of “The Voice” on NBC. Returning as mistress of ceremonies is NBC4 veteran general assignment reporter Toni Guinyard.

Proceeds from the event will benefit CDU in its mission to train diverse healthcare professionals through Saturday Science Academy II, an impactful pipeline program that encourages K-12 South Los Angeles students to excel in math, science and technology as well as provide support for Student Services which enhances Students’ experience here at CDU.
Make your online ticket purchase by April 4th at http://www.cduat50.org/events/april-2016-4th-annual-legacy-leaders-spring-gala/, or by phone by calling the Office of Strategic Advancement at 323.357.3669 or email advancement@cdrewu.edu. For updates, follow #CDUat50 on social media.

So that no one is left out, CDU has launched the “#Give50”, a campaign which encourages everyone to contribute $50 or more toward the University’s 50th Anniversary celebration. More information will be available at the hashtag.

The gala is one in a series of events throughout the year that will honor CDU’s 50 years of training outstanding health professionals. On August 22, 1966, CDU was founded following the Watts Revolt, to address the inadequate access to healthcare in the community of Watts and greater South Los Angeles.
