Nite of Hope Richmond

Wings of Hope was the butterfly theme for Nite of Hope, an annual fundraiser for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. This was held on April 6th in Richmond at the River Rock Casino and twelve of the AIAB Richmond crew attended this fun filled evening. As usual, the speeches were excellent and there were many laughs. The keynote speaker, Dr. Ashley Davidson, spoke of a future of more predictive and individualized treatments for breast cancer patients. He also reiterated that B.C. provides the best care in Canada. Over $2 million has been raised this year and with an extra challenge to the participants at each table there was over $200,000 raised that night in addition to the ticket sales. This was a record for one evening. If you have a chance to attend a Nite of Hope event in the future please take advantage of it. It is fun, educational and rewarding.
