Fun Casino Night - Thank You

Every year, we look forward to connecting with our community at our Fun Casino Night – coming together to raise funds for critical Crohn’s and colitis research while having a great time. This year, of course, turned out to be very different. While our Fun Casino Night evolved given the circumstances, the need to support the Crohn’s and colitis community has never been greater. We have now helped 4X more people than 2019 and that number grows every day. There’s been 100,000 more visitors to our website and we will have delivered 5X more webinars. Thank you for helping us provide this valuable support and to help sustain and to advance promising IBD research.

Together through the Fun Casino Night, you raised $37,955!

Thank you to our fabulous volunteer organizers: Patrizia Coppola, Caryn Liberman and Maureen Wakeford.  Our heartfelt appreciation to everyone who turned their ticket purchase into a donation, everyone who bought or donated auction items and to those that made a donation.  

Thank you to our sponsors: Kramer Mazda, Truman Insurance, Mawer, Quest Geomatics, Harvey & Sherry Doerr, BMO Wealth Management, BioScript Pharmacy, Bowron Environmental Group, RBC, ACME Energy Marketing, Geologic Systems, Patching Associates Acoustical Engineering and Rosen Group.

Thank you to all our volunteers and supporters for your generosity and understanding during these challenging times. We are so touched by your ongoing commitment to this important cause.
