You’re invited to the 2021 Galas for Crohn’s and Colitis Canada!

Gala season is here! Are you ready to celebrate all that Crohn’s and Colitis Canada has accomplished with your generous support? 

This year, with the help of our amazing Gala community, Crohn’s and Colitis Canada was able to fund an exciting eight new research projects—investing an amazing $2.5 million into research that can lead to improved treatments, and hopefully, cures. 

This year we’ll be celebrating in style—and online—on two separate evenings. 

Join us on Thursday, November 4 at the 2021 Gutsy & Glamorous Gala: Night In. Hosted by former CFL Blue Bomber and entrepreneur Ibrahim “Obby” Khan and featuring a cast of exciting musical guests.   This is an online experience you won’t want to miss. Tickets are $75 and all sales go to support Crohn’s and Colitis Canada’s promise to cure Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis and to improve the lives of all those affected. 

Then, later in the month, on Tuesday, November 30 at 7:30 p.m., join us at the 2021 Gala for Crohn’s and Colitis Canada, also happening virtually. As this year’s theme is Advancing IBD Research, we invite you to join your Montreal and Toronto Gala communities as we celebrate the research milestones your support is helping to make as we look forward to grow our pool of newly funded researchers even more next year. Show access is complimentary with a donation of any amount – and all donors will receive public recognition on our 2021 Gala for Crohn’s and Colitis Canada Donor Circle. You can also show support by taking part in the online auction, taking place from Monday, November 15 to Tuesday, November 30. Stay tuned for announcements about the exciting items on offer!

No matter where you are and how you’re connected to Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis, we hope you can join us and our community at these exciting events. We’ve accomplished a lot in the past year, and it’s time to celebrate you and all your support!
