CCS adapting to COVID-19 realities to support Canadians during and after the pandemic
2020 35th Anniversary Daffodil Gala
We're celebrating our special 35th Annual Canadian Cancer Society Daffodil Gala on Friday, September 25, 2020 in the York Ballroom at the RBC Convention Centre.
Join us for a wonderful evening of fine dining, friendship and dancing to the Danny Kramer Band as we celebrate and mark the progress that has been made against cancer right here in Manitoba. There will be silent and live auctions, as well as an Unlock the Box raffle with a chance to win a spectacular piece courtesy of our long-time sponsor Roger Watson Jewellers.
A lot has changed in 35 years as we’ve learned how to detect cancer sooner, diagnose it more precisely and treat it better. Lives are being saved because people like you support events like the Daffodil Gala. With your support at Gala, we have raised more than $1.1 million over the last two years.
This year, we want to make the 35th Anniversary Gala a special night for everyone and have our biggest impact yet. Be part of this special evening.
The Canadian Cancer Society currently provides more research funds than any other national charity for 21of the 24 most common forms of cancer including breast, prostate,lung, colorectal and childhood cancers. With 6,700 Manitoba families facing a cancer diagnosis this year, the need for our support has never been greater.
It was very important that the fundraiser be in honour of my uncle, because it’s a great way to show our support for him.
