SIRPAC announces contest winners

The 2018 SIRPAC fundraising contest concluded on Dec. 15. The winning state was California, which overcame a late push by Pennsylvania to take the top spot. Pennsylvania came in second place, followed by a third-place tie between New York and Illinois.


The institution with the most individual contributors was a tie between MD Anderson and Memorial Sloan Kettering. Second place was Mountain Medical Physician Specialists followed by Albany Medical Center in third. Winners will be formally recognized during the 2019 Annual Meeting in Austin, Texas.


SIRPAC raised nearly $56,000 from more than 325 individual donors. The SIRPAC Board of Directors thanks the members who donated to SIRPAC in 2018 for doing their part to make the voice of interventional radiology heard on Capitol Hill!


If you missed the contest, you can still support SIRPAC in 2019.
