CVIM Flagship Events

Battle of the Minds

In 2007, the State College Rotary Club combined with CVIM on the Thanks for Giving fundraiser to benefit CVIM. This led to the “Battle of the Minds“, our signature annual event. Normally, this event includes a formal dinner followed by a professionally-produced trivia game with questions such as “What is TV’s most frequent Final Jeopardy category question?” and “How many prescriptions did CVIM write over the past year?”

Because of the need for social distancing this year, the 13th annual Battle of the Minds was an online streaming event.  Our guest emcee Jeff Brown and Director of Development, Monica Wright provided our guests with an interactive and entertaining evening of trivia. While we missed the live event that averages 370 attendees at tables of 10 competing for the win, the virtual event allowed smaller groups or individuals to play from the comfort of their own homes. Whether we are at the Penn Stater or at home, next year’s event will be held on Wednesday, October 13, 2021.

Central Cycling Classic

You did it!!

Thank you for helping the Central Cycling Classic reach their goal of $30,000.00.

Thank you to our cyclists for registering to ride during the month of July.

Thank you to our fundraisers that challenged themselves to ride every day or to ride a certain mileage to help raise additional funds for Centre Volunteers in Medicine.

Thank you to the donors for donating to our fundraisers and helping them to meet their personal goals.

Finally, thank you to our committee members for believing in the idea of a virtual event and helping to see it through.  Without your hard work, determination, and dedication to make the best out of the situation, we would not have come close to meeting our goal.
