A Night to Remember: The MOCF Ball
On behalf of the Michigan Osteopathic College Foundation and the Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine, we would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support of the 2011 MOCF Ball – “Puttin’ on the Glitz”.
Despite the Michigan weather, more than 800 guests joined us for a wonderful evening in support of the college and the Michigan Osteopathic College Foundation.
We are pleased to report that the 2011 event generated net proceeds of approximately $300,000. All of the proceeds will be added to the MOCF Endowment fund at MSU. Over the past six years, this event has resulted in an increase of more than $1.3 million to the endowment, supporting student scholarships, community outreach, and educational programs at MSUCOM.
We anticipate that next year’s event will be another sold out evening, so we encourage you to mark your calendars now for the 2012 MOCF Ball, which will be held on Saturday, February 4, 2012, at The Henry – Autograph Collection, Dearborn.
Thank you again for your support of the MOCF, MSUCOM, and the osteopathic profession in the state of Michigan. Together we DO make a difference!
We look forward to seeing you next year!
