Please join us!
The annual Heart & Stroke Gala has always been an evening of good food and music, inspiring guest speakers, and a shared goal to make a difference for people living with or at risk for heart disease and stroke.
This year, we won't be together for the traditional Gala evening, but we can definitely keep the fun going while we make an impact together. Do it up in your own way: dress in your finest while in your slippers, or maybe you'd prefer PJs with heels! Make a nice meal, or order in from your favourite local eatery. Open a special bottle of wine, mix a signature cocktail, or brew a pot of tea. Then settle in for an hour with like-minded people to enjoy some great local talent and listen to inspiring stories.
Registration for the Gala is by donation, and we'll also hold an exciting online Silent Auction to launch on April 23. With your support by donation or auction purchases, along with the generous contributions of our sponsors, we have a goal to raise $400,000 to support four exceptional BC researchers, whose work spans areas from Diabetes and Heart Disease, Women's Heart Health, Arrhythmia and Sudden Death in Children, and Preventing Brain Damage from Stroke.
When you make a donation to the Gala, you will have the opportunity to select the researcher whose work you would like your donation to support. And when we reach our goal, we'll be able to providing another year of funding to support the life-saving work that these researchers are doing. When we beat as one, we can achieve incredible impact!
We hope you'll join us on May 7, 2021 from 7-8 pm PT, and check this page for updates on the evening's lineup of special guests!
