Carol Van Andel Angel of Excellence Dinner and Award Presentation

The Carol Van Andel Angel of Excellence Dinner and Award Presentation recognizes individuals who have demonstrated a strong commitment to Van Andel Institute’s mission through volunteer service and philanthropic efforts. This award celebrates the extraordinary efforts of philanthropists, volunteers and advocates whose undeniable generosity and tireless determination support VAI’s ability to improve the health and enhance the lives of current and future generations.

Guests will be treated to world-class entertainment, an exclusive video presentation, delectable food and drinks, and remarks given by Carol Van Andel and this year’s award recipients.

The evening will also welcome the newest members to VAI’s Leadership and Legacy Societies for 2022. This honor celebrates individuals, schools, organizations and businesses who have contributed significantly to benefit the Institute’s biomedical research and science education programs.

The Leadership Society recognizes those who have raised more than $10,000 cumulatively, and the Legacy Society celebrates those who have raised more than $100,000 cumulatively. The names of those inducted into both societies are etched into wood blocks that line the walls of the Institute’s lobby.
