Online Galas for Crohn’s and Colitis Canada

Crohn

While the COVID-19 pandemic has affected the ways in which we gather, the urgent need for Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis research funding has only expanded. Every year, our Crohn's and colitis communities in Toronto, Montreal and Winnipeg come out to attend an unparalleled night of music, fine dining, and philanthropy in support of Crohn's and Colitis Canada's critical research projects and patient programs. This year we're continuing to host our Galas, but online!

We hope you will help support our Crohn's and colitis communities in Toronto, Montreal and Winnipeg by making a kind donation to one of our virtual Galas today and to aid us in our mission to create a world free from Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. As you may know, the COVID-19 pandemic has hit a variety of sectors hard, and in particular, charitable organizations are facing revenue losses across the board due to cancelled in-person events. 

Yet our need for new research has never been greater as our community is uniquely affected by COVID-19 as an immunocompromised population. 

While we can't get together for a fun night of networking and philanthropy, we can still support this cause as we work to support our researchers as they look for clues to the next breakthrough in understanding Crohn's and colitis. 

Please support our Crohn's and colitis communities in Toronto, Montreal and Winnipeg by donating to one of our virtual Galas today:

Thank you so much for your kind support of our socially distant, no-go Galas!
