The Tumour Foundation held its biggest event of 2023 and it was a huge success!
Thank you to all the businesses, donors and guests who supported the 2023 fundraiser. This year’s Cocktail for a Cure was the most successful fundraiser in the foundation’s history.

You can view the full list of donors below. We ask that you please support them with your patronage.
We hope to see you all again next year!

SOME IMAGES OF THE COCKTAILS FOR A CURE 2023 EVENT
BELOW IS THE ORIGINAL PRE-EVENT POSTING
Cocktails for a Cure is more than just a party!
With an auction of incredible prizes and fabulous dining, all in a spectacular river front setting, you don’t want to miss out on the 2023 Cocktails for a Cure fundraiser!
This is the key fundraiser for the Tumour Foundation of BC, which supports children and families across the province affected with neurofibromatosis (NF).
Your ticket to the charity event, being hosted at the Inn at the Quay in New Westminster, includes:
A buffet dinner of fresh West Coast cuisine from the onsite Boathouse
5 Dog Ears band
Ample opportunities to bid on unique items at the silent auction and a live auction hosted by professional auctioneer Scott Melville.
Proceeds will support the Foundation’s mission to optimize the health and well-being individuals affected by NF throughout BC.
NF is a genetic condition that causes uncontrollable tumour growth on the nerves throughout the body. These tumours can cause disfigurement, bone deformities, vision impairment, hearing loss, disabling pain and cancer.
NF affects more than two million people worldwide, making it more common that Duchenne’s muscular dystrophy, cystic fibrosis, and Huntington’s disease combined.There is no cure for NF.
Please join us at this event on April 29th and let families with NF know they are not alone.
Cocktails for a Cure was a Success!
Thanks to the support of the community our event raised $28,000 for the virtual NF medical clinic.
We are deeply grateful for our donors who contributed over a hundred auction items and to our guests for their bids and generous cash donations. These funds will allow us to continue providing highly specialized medical care to the community affected with neurofibromatosis across the province. We ask that you support our donors by visiting their businesses.
THANK YOU TO ALL OUR DONORS!
