Vita Redita (“Life Restored” in Latin) is UM Transplant Center’s annual gala & auction. This black tie optional event features a strolling dinner provided by The Moveable Feast, drinks, and dessert.
Guests have a rare opportunity to tour the Wolverines’ locker room and visit the football field. The brief program will include special speaker Evin Green, who received a double lung transplant last year.
You can bid on fabulous items at our silent and live auctions. Silent auction bidding will all take place online via your cell phone. Please bring your cell phone fully charged to the event!
Stay for the afterglow party with special musical guest legendary guitarist Laith Al-Saadi and his band! This wonderful evening supports the Transplant Center’s patient emergency fund, outreach and educational efforts, and helps send our transplant kids to Camp Michitanki.
