The dinner will celebrate the delivery of donated medical supplies and equipment, valued at an estimated $100,000,000, to hospitals in 37 regions of the world in the past 10 years.
Guest speaker Dr. Mark Kevin, FACP, will focus on how help can be provided to areas around the world with inadequate medical facilities and equipment.
