The 33rd Annual Canadian Cancer Society Daffodil Gala will be held on Friday, September 28th, 2018 at the RBC Convention Centre.

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.

This year, we are proud to welcome the Baranyk Family as our Honourary Chairs.

"On February 18th of this year, we lost our husband, father and grandfather (Gigi), Leonard Baranyk to cancer.

Just two weeks before he passed, he had agreed to be the Honourary Chair for this year's Canadian Cancer Society Daffodil Gala because he knew that it was only through research that we could detect cancer sooner, develop better treatments to combat it and ultimately find a cure.

We hope you will join us on Friday, September 28th for an evening to honour our Dad and the progress that has been made in the cancer fight. Together, we can fight back against cancer, support research programs and services that help cancer patients right here in Manitoba.

gala 2018

Last year, because of the generous support of our corporate partners, sponsors, and guests, the 2017 Daffodil Gala raised more than $210,000 in support of cancer patients and their families as the Canadian Cancer Society continues to lead the fight against all forms of cancer. It currently provides more research funds than any other 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.



A teenaged girl sitting on her bed I was in total shock when I heard the diagnosis of cancer. Cancer to me was an adult’s disease. Being a 13-year-old teenager, it certainly wasn’t even on my radar.
