About the Event

Today’s success of Western University of Health Sciences (WesternU) belies its humble origins. The institution was established in 1977 as the College of Osteopathic Medicine of the Pacific (COMP). Now, 38 years later, it is a University, consisting of 9 colleges and two campuses, each wholly committed to producing, in a humanistic tradition, health care professionals and biomedical knowledge that will enhance and extend the quality of life in our communities.

Today’s WesternU is a thriving academic health center with an enrollment of over 3,900. Alumni, now more than 12,000 strong, are working all over the world, improving the quality of life for patients in their communities.

As the demand for graduate-level health care professionals continues to increase, so does the cost of their education. More students than ever before need help shouldering the financial burden of entering their professions. Every year, the funds raised from “A Tribute to Caring” provide crucial scholarship support for these students’ needs.

Please join us on Saturday, November 7, 2015 at the Disneyland Hotel in Anaheim to help raise funds for student scholarships. Guests at the “A Tribute to Caring” gala will enjoy a hosted reception with entertainment, along with a sumptuous dinner, an entertaining program, and after-dinner dancing and mingling.

Please consider maximizing your participation by becoming a sponsor. Your tax-deductible sponsorship contribution will publicize your company or organization among its many other benefits. More importantly, your gift will provide WesternU students with the financial assistance they need to achieve their dreams of serving their communities as health care professionals in the humanistic tradition.
