2015 President’s Reception and Awards Gala

Each year, the California Medical Association (CMA) and the CMA Foundation celebrate the extraordinary leadership of individuals and organizations making a difference in the health of Californians. The incoming CMA president and recipients of the Robert D. Sparks, M.D., Leadership Award and the Adarsh S. Mahal, M.D., Access to Health Care and Disparities Award are recognized at the annual President’s Reception and Awards Gala, which includes a cocktail reception, dinner, inspiring awards presentation, live auction and exciting entertainment. This year’s black tie event will take place at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa on the evening of Saturday, October 17, immediately following the annual House of Delegates meeting that day. Mark your calendars, as this will be a whimsical night to remember.

The CMA Foundation is also seeking donations for the Gala's live auction and raffle. Ideas include the use of vacation homes or timeshares, sailing trips, spa treatments, air travel vouchers, private dinners, and sports or entertainment packages—the options are endless!

All donations are tax deductible and recognition will be provided to the donors within the event signage, Gala program and online. One hundred percent of the proceeds from your donation will directly benefit the CMA Foundation and the meaningful work it does throughout the state of California, including the medical student grant program, appropriate antibiotic use, vaccination advocacy, childhood obesity and diabetes, ending health care disparities, and improving access to health care.

A donation is also a great way to promote your business to the state’s most influential physicians, health care leaders, executives and policy makers who will be in attendance. To donate, please contact Vicky Sjol at (916) 779-6625 or
