The 2016 Daffodil Gala will be held on September 30, 2016 at the RBC Convention Centre Winnipeg.
Join us for a wonderful evening of fine dining, dancing and celebrating as we mark the progress that has been made against the cancer fight here in Manitoba.
Last year, because of the generous support of our corporate partners, sponsors, and guests, the 2015 Daffodil Gala raised more than $230,000 in support of cancer patients and their families.
The Canadian Cancer Society has been able to lead the fight against all forms of cancer. It currently provides more research funds than any other charity for 18 of the 24 most common forms of cancer including lung, colorectal and childhood and is second in research funding for the remaining 6 most common forms of cancer. With 6,700 Manitoba families facing a cancer diagnosis this year, this is no time to let up on the fight.
Join our 2016 Daffodil Gala Honourary Chairs Bob Friesen and Marnie Strath and make a positive difference in the cancer fight.
Watch the video below to see one example of how the money raised is helping the Canadian Cancer Society's fight for life in Manitoba.
Brock has been cancer free for over a decade, thanks to the support we received from the Canadian Cancer Society.
