The University of Toledo College of Medicine and Life Sciences’ annual Medicine Ball will raise funds for scholarships and to expand local clinics where students care for patients.

The 2018 Medicine Ball will take place Saturday, Jan. 27, from 6 to 11 p.m. at the Toledo Zoo’s Malawi Room. It is organized by medical students who are involved in Students for Medical Missions, the Community Care Clinic, and the UT chapter of the American Medical Student Association.

“Thanks to the generosity of last year’s donors, we were able to raise enough money to fund scholarships for 14 students,” said Isabella Bartholomew, a UT second-year medical student and president of Students for Medical Missions. “This year we hope to surpass that mark and plan to continue growing our medical services within the community and abroad.”

The event is open to all College of Medicine students and faculty, and will feature a dinner and cash bar. 

Tickets are $50 or $95 for a couple; a student ticket is $35. Tables, which seat 10, also are available for $450. A dancing ticket with entry after 9 p.m. is $10.

Tickets will be on sale daily from noon to 1 p.m. in the Health Education Building lobby.

Tickets also can be purchased via the Venmo app to Lexie Schwann @lex_schwann by mentioning Med Ball and the number of tickets and number of drink tickets requested (for example, Med Ball #1 ticket, #1 drink ticket).
