Evening Emcee- Actor/Director Zach Braff

We invite you to join us on June 10th for The Gala, a 3-way cooperative event showcasing a joint focus on research and awareness for brain aneurysm, AVM, and hemorrhagic stroke as well as neurosurgical care of indigent people.

Hosted by actor/director Zach Braff, who is best known for playing the role of Dr. John ‘J.D.’ Dorian on the hit television series, Scrubs (2001), Zach will be our emcee, while athletes and celebrities from across the country join patrons in an evening of fine dining, celebration, and memories to last a lifetime. Braff is also known for his writing, directing and acting roles in the films Garden State (2004) and Wish I Was Here (2014).

In collaboration with Mission:BRAIN and The Joe Niekro Foundation, we are proud to announce our first William L. Young Achievement Award recipient, Dr. Michael Lawton. Dr. Lawton is the Tong-Po Kan Endowed Chair, Professor of neurological surgery, and Vice-Chairman of the department at The University of California, San Francisco. As chief of one of the busiest cerebrovascular centers on the west coast, Dr. Lawton is being recognized for his outstanding advancement and treatment of brain aneurysms, AVM’s, and hemorrhagic strokes. In July, Dr. Lawton will embark on a new journey as the Chairman of Neurosurgery and President/CEO of Barrow Neurological Institute in Phoenix, Arizona, where he will replace his retiring mentor, Dr. Robert Spetzler. It is our honor to celebrate his 20 years at UCSF.

The Aneurysm and AVM Foundation (TAAF) is dedicated to bettering the lives, support networks, and medical care of those affected by aneurysm and other types of vascular malformation of the brain.

Please join us for an unforgettable evening as we pay tribute to Dr. Lawton while honoring those we have lost as well as the survivors fighting every day to recover. Festivities will feature a cocktail reception, silent auction, formal dinner, event program, LIVE auction, and a few surprises in between!
