Daffodil Gala

The 34th Annual Canadian Cancer Society Daffodil Gala will be held on Friday, September 27, 2019 in the York Ballroom at the RBC Convention Centre.

Join us for a wonderful evening of fine dining; silent and live auctions; Unlock the Box raffle with a chance to win a spectacular piece of jewellery courtesy of our long-time sponsor Roger Watson Jewellery and dancing to the Danny Kramer Dance Band as we celebrate and mark the progress that has been made against the cancer fight right here in Manitoba.

Last year, because of the generous support of the Baranyk family (2018 Honourary Chairs), corporate partners, sponsors and the 800 guests in attendance, the 2018 Daffodil Gala raised $750,000 to support research as well as support programs like Manitoba`s Wheels of Hope transportation service.

The Canadian Cancer Society currently provides more research funds than any other national charity for 19 of the 24 most common forms of cancer including lung, colorectal and childhood and is second in research funding for the remaining 5 most common forms of cancer. With 6,700 Manitoba families facing a cancer diagnosis this year, there is no time to let up on the fight.

Message from our 2019 Honourary Chairs


We invite you to join us at the 34th Annual Canadian Cancer Society Daffodil Gala as we come together as a force-for-life in the face of cancer. It will be a wonderful evening of great friends, fabulous food and dancing as we demonstrate that together we are bigger than cancer. Funds raised will benefit Manitoba cancer patients and have the biggest impact against cancer.

We know that cancer changes people and that 1 in 2 Canadians will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. But a cancer diagnosis doesn’t have to define a person. Like you, our family has been touched by this terrible disease and we encourage you to join with us to create a world where no Canadian fears cancer. We promise it will be an evening you won’t forget.
