Discovery Luncheon

Discovery Luncheon Kelowna

The 2014 Discovery Luncheon in Kelowna raised an amazing $100,000 for clinical trials.

The BC Cancer Foundation’s 2014 Discovery Luncheon—Kelowna raised an amazing $100,000 to support clinical trials research at the BC Cancer Agency Sindi Ahluwalia Hawkins Centre for the Southern Interior. The funds raised from the sold-out event ensure local patients will benefit from advancements in cancer research and care from progress made through clinical trials.

Last year, the event raised an amazing $82,000 to support the Breast Seed Brachytherapy Pilot Research Project BC Cancer Agency in Kelowna. The project offers patients an effective, more convenient option than traditional radiation therapy by delivering treatment precisely to the site of the cancer. Over four  years, over $290,000 has been raised through the Discovery Luncheon to enable more rapid advancements in cancer research and care.
