Vita Redita 2022: Live more! Discover more! Give more!

September 28, 2022  //  FOUND IN: News

The Vita Redita Gala, benefiting the U-M Transplant Center, is back at the Big House this year in the Jack Roth Stadium Club. Individual tickets are still available.

The 20th annual Vita Redita Gala will take place on Saturday, Oct. 8. Past Vita Redita events have raised more than $1 million to support Camp Michitanki and Transplant Center patients and families. 

Vita Redita is Latin for “life restored.” The festive evening is a time to come together, celebrate our patients and our accomplishments, and raise awareness for organ transplantation research. 

Funds from the event provide opportunities for children who have received transplants to enjoy a safe and unforgettable summer camp experience. This year’s gala will support both Camp Michitanki and the Transplant Center Innovation Fund to accelerate promising research.

This year’s black-tie party will feature tours of the Big House, field and locker rooms; silent and live auctions; and a sit-down dinner.

Since the first transplant in Michigan took place at U-M back in 1964, more than 10,000 patients have benefited from the organization’s program, making the Transplant Center the largest and most experienced of its kind in the state — and among the largest in the nation. 

Since its beginnings, transplantation has progressed from an experimental, risky procedure to a successful medical therapy. These advancements have only been possible through the generosity of incredible supporters over the years. The Transplant Center prioritizes the health, wellness, and quality of life for all patients who depend on our care far beyond the operating room. And, faculty, staff, and volunteers have created a robust program that integrates scientific research, personalized treatment plans, and community outreach.
