Why ARThritis Soirée?

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

Research has shown art adds to one’s well-being and therefore is a great element in managing chronic diseases on a holistic level. Moreover, art adds an extra factor of excitement and depth to the Soirée each year with the introduction of a different art form. Arthritis Research Canada is thrilled to announce world-renowned violinist Jenny Bae, accompanied by members of the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra as the evening entertainment. Jenny’s dazzling performances have wowed international crowds for over a decade, performing solo and with artists such as Luciano Pavarotti, Eric Clapton, Elton John and Andrea Bocelli. The Julliard trained Bae has captivated audiences which have most notably included the British Royal Family, Crown Princess of Saudi Arabia, George Clooney and Mikhail Gorbachev.

The number of Canadians affected by arthritis is now more than 5.2 million, which includes nearly 700,000 British Columbians. This represents one in six of us suffering with arthritis. Arthritis Research Canada is committed to leading research, finding answers and saving lives. Our mission is to transform the lives of people living with arthritis through research and engagement. Our vision is a future where research-based services, tools and knowledge empower people living with arthritis to triumph over pain and disability.

In 2000, the Arthritis Research Centre of Canada was established by world-renowned scientist and rheumatologist Dr. John Esdaile, and a dedicated Board of Directors. Together, they shared a vision to conduct practical research for everyday living. Research that would immediately touch and improve the lives of people living with arthritis through more timely and cost effective solutions. Known today as Arthritis Research Canada (ARC) the organization is now national in scope and includes three centres; British Columbia, Alberta and Quebec.
