2017 Hope Couture

The BC Cancer Foundation’s 2017 Hope Couture will be raising funds for Preventing Women’s Reproductive Cancers at the BC Cancer Agency. This elegant luncheon for 400 guests will take place mid-September at a downtown Vancouver venue, and will include a silent auction reception, live auction, raffle, gourmet lunch and fashion show by Vancouver’s leading boutique retailers, Bacci’s and Boboli.

2016 Hope Couture, presented by CDN Jade Mine Resources, raised an incredible $900,000 to support important research into personalized lymphoma care at the BC Cancer Agency’s Centre for Lymphoid Cancer.

Thanks to all donors and a generous gift of $500,000 from Samuel and Frances Belzberg by way of the Bel-Fran Charitable Foundation, funds raised will support a new Single Cell Genomics Suite at the Centre. The new suite will bring hope to more than1,200 British Columbians that will be diagnosed with a form of lymphoma this year alone by supporting researchers to study single cell populations to better pinpoint treatment resistance and identify potential therapies, enhancing the lymphoma standard of care in B.C.
