What better way to close out a 50th anniversary year than with the biggest party of them all. The Faculty of Dentistry has confirmed plans for the 50 Year Finale, the faculty’s closing bash to mark its 50 years at the University of Manitoba.
Tickets are now available for the November 22 gala event that includes a keynote address from Mr. Charles Winograd, CEO of RBC Royal Bank, one of Canada’s most prominent and successful businessmen.
“It is with tremendous excitement and pride that we confirm that our 50 Year Finale will take place on November 22,” said Dr. Anthony M. Iacopino, Dean of Dentistry at The University of Manitoba. “We are thrilled to announce that the evening will include an appearance by one of the most respected and sought-after business figures in North America today.”
The 50 Year Finale will feature Dr. Jan Brown as co-host and emcee. Dr. Brown is the former president of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers football club and was named co-recipient of the 2008 Faculty of Dentistry Alumni of Distinction award, among many other community and professional achievements.
Dr. Brown will share the stage with Dr. Les Allen, another faculty alumnus and one-time president of the Canadian Dental Association.
Tickets for the fund-raising and anniversary gala are now on available for $200 each through the faculty and all tickets purchased will be entered into a draw for a special grand prize draw that will take place that evening.
Proceeds from the event will support the Drive for Top Five, the Faculty of Dentistry’s long-term strategy to become one of the top five dental schools in North America.
The event title sponsor is Dentsply.
