Vesalius Trust Event

Monday July 24, 7 pm

You are invited to the Vesalius Trust dinner event – build your own taco and enjoy the live auction. A fun evening is planned where we will go a little batty for VT scholarship and research. Did you know that Austin’s Congress Avenue Bridge is home to 1.5 million bats? Get into the bat theme with bat accessories like ears, hats, masks, jewelry, t-shirts – whatever inspires you. The crowd will vote on the most creative expression and reward the winners. The ticket price is 50% dinner and 50% donation and you will not be pressured to give any more.  Fine art from some of our most talented members will be featured at the live auction. The event will be held at Gabriel’s Pub inside the hotel. Space is very limited so you are encouraged to buy your ticket soon. Registration is NOT included in AMI meeting registration. Purchase tickets at the Vesalius Trust website  $65. per person, $25. for students.

Go to bat!
