Through the Shining Knight Gala, the VCU Trauma Center celebrates one patient's remarkable story of survival and the Shining Knight teams that made his or her recovery possible.

In addition, the Gala provides sponsors an opportunity to support Central Virginia’s only Level One Trauma Center. A sponsorship of this event goes toward injury and violence prevention programs through the Trauma Center which provides organizations in Central Virginia with funding that can impact injury prevention efforts in their communities.

Thank you to our 2018 sponsors
