The MCV Society, the planned giving society created by
the Medical College of Virginia Foundation and supporting the MCV
Campus of Virginia Commonwealth University, enjoyed its fifth annual spring
outing April 28.
This year’s event took place at Agecroft Hall, a 15th-century
English manor house located in the Windsor Farms neighborhood in the near
West End of Richmond.
MCV Foundation President Bill Kotti, Ph.D., welcomed the group
and announced that this year the MCV Society welcomed a record number of 52
new members. He also recognized MCV Foundation trustees, lifetime honorary
trustees and VCU leaders in attendance as well as the MCV Society member who
had traveled the farthest to attend, Dr. Joseph B. Kohen Jr.
(M.D.’55/M), who lives in California.
Although storms threatened, the group of more than 80 MCV
Society members and guests enjoyed a reception in the outside court yard and
toured the estate’s beautiful gardens before the festivities moved inside
later in the evening. Members enjoyed catching up with former classmates,
colleagues and friends, reminiscing about old times and remarking on new
developments on the MCV Campus.
James River Cellars Winery also provided a
tasting of several of their most popular selections, including Rad Red, a
variety from which a portion of proceeds from every bottle is always donated
to the VCU Massey Cancer Center.
