Founders' Society dinner, October 2019
More than 200 friends of Virginia Commonwealth University gathered in October at the Richmond, Virginia, Main Street Station Train Shed for the VCU Founders’ Society Dinner. The black-tie event recognizes benefactors of VCU who have made commitments of $100,000 or more to support the mission of the university and its health system. During a cocktail reception, guests were invited to view an exhibit chronicling the efforts, results and lasting impact of private giving throughout VCU’s history. After dinner, VCU President Michael Rao, Ph.D., and Vice President of Development and Alumni Relations Jay E. Davenport, CFRE, presented new members with special Founders’ Society medallions.
