About

The ARThritis Soirée

The ARThritis Soirée is an evening that brings together the city’s business and community leaders, philanthropists, doctors, scientists, healthcare professionals, and those who share an appreciation of art and a desire to support arthritis research.

Research has shown that art adds to one’s well-being and is therefore a great element in managing chronic diseases on a holistic level. Each year, a different art form is featured to add an extra factor of excitement and depth to the Soirée.

The elegant cocktail reception boasts something for everyone—mouth-watering hors d’oeuvres, champagne and popular BC wines, as well as an amazing raffle, live and silent auctions, and of course an up close and personal show by Bill Henderson, that is sure to include some of Chilliwack’s greatest hits.

Please support life-changing arthritis research!
