Gala Celebration

To our MBKU Community:

As our nation, communities, and families face the current uncertainty brought about by the COVID-19 crisis, MBKU has made the decision to cancel our 2020 MBKU Gala Celebration. The event scheduled for September 12, 2020, and alumni reunions, will not take place this year.

We are grateful to our alumni and benefactors who have supported MBKU, the Southern California College of Optometry, School of Physician Assistant Studies and College of Pharmacy through this event and other charitable gifts. Your generosity has enabled us to provide annual student scholarships, support the program’s greatest needs and establish endowed scholarship funds. Thank you for supporting our mission.

As a member of the Ketchum family, we appreciate the work you are doing in the community, taking care of patients and providing leadership during these difficult times. Stay well!

Save the Date for our 2021 MBKU Gala Celebration, September 18, 2021.

All nominations for the Distinguished Alumni awards will be carried over for consideration for the MBKU Gala Celebration 2021.

If you have already made a sponsorship gift or donation to the MBKU Gala Celebration 2020, someone on our staff will be in touch with you about your gift. Or you may email
