Honoring Those Who Protect and Save Lives in Central Virginia

Photos from the 2018 Shining Knight Gala

Each year at the gala, dozens of Shining Knights are recognized for their role in saving the life of one specific trauma patient with net proceeds from the gala benefitting injury and violence prevention programs at and through the VCU Medical Center. Whether someone conducted CPR, performed a surgical procedure, provided emotional support or physical help at a vital time, we all have Shining Knights who have touched our lives who deserve to be honored and thanked.

For the first time, in association with the 10th Annual Shining Knight Gala, the gala’s website and event program featured a Personal Shining Knight Honor Wall where people were able to honor their own Shining Knights through a $50 contribution. 

Names of Shining Knights have been listed alphabetically and those honoring their Shining Knights had the option to remain anonymous or have their name shared as well.

By supporting the Shining Knight Gala through sponsorships, ticket purchases, or the Honor Wall you enable us to fund and continue our vitally important Injury and Prevention Programs in the central Virginia community. Without private support, these life-changing and life-saving programs would not be sustainable. We appreciate your support of our mission of preventing injury and violence.
