Celebration, Education, Support

photo of awards ceremonyThe Shining Knight Gala is an occasion designed to celebrate a life saved and the many women and men who made it possible.

One of the highlights of the evening is an in-depth look into the journey of a trauma patient; from injury to recovery. We will learn about the heroic efforts and collaboration of an outstanding team of “Shining Knights” made up of care providers from first responders, to trauma surgeons, nurses, and countless others. The survivor and supporters come together to honor these Shining Knights and learn what it takes to give a trauma survivor a second chance at life. The event's program exemplifies the outstanding work we are privileged to be a part of every day.

VCU Medical Center is proud to be Virginia’s longest-standing Level I trauma center. We hope you gain some insight into what we do and why we are so passionate about it.

Funds raised at the Shining Knight Gala are used to support VCU Health Injury and Violence Prevention Programs that benefit the communities of Richmond, Central Virginia, and beyond.



The Shining Knight Gala provides sponsors an opportunity to support Central Virginia’s only Level One Trauma Center. Through the Gala we celebrate one patient's remarkable story of survival and the team that made his or her recovery possible.

A sponsorship of this event supports Injury and Violence Prevention Programs through the Trauma Center and gives any organization the opportunity to support a cause that impacts all Central Virginians in need of trauma care.
