We are grateful for your support.

The first-ever virtual version of the ARThritis Soirée took place on May 27, allowing guests from across Canada and beyond to attend.

It was an action-packed hour driven by co-hosts Coleen Christie of Global BC and Mike Reno of Loverboy. Performances by award-winning, Canadian artists – Bill Henderson of Chilliwack, Neil Osborne of 54-40, Josh Ramsay of Marianas Trench, and SaxAndViolin – had people dancing around their living rooms.

The event raised important funds for arthritis research to help over 6 million Canadians living with pain and disability caused by 100+ rheumatic diseases. Nikki Bhatti is one of those people. Please watch her story below.

Arthritis Research Canada would like to thank Macdonald Realty and Macdonald Commercial for supporting the ARThritis Soirée as Presenting Sponsor for three consecutive years. We would also like to thank all sponsors, donors, performers, guests, hosts and everyone who made the event possible.

“The world has changed significantly over the past year, but the need for arthritis research remains the same,” said Dr. Diane Lacaille, Arthritis Research Canada’s Scientific Director. “We are grateful for the continued support of our event in its new, virtual format.”
