Thank you for supporting this year’s Glow Gala!

 

The annual signature fundraiser in support of women’s health in BC, brought together 500 community, business, and healthcare leaders for an exciting evening with auction bidding fun, star entertainment, and delectable food + drinks throughout.

The event was made possible thanks to the support of our Sponsors!

We began a new tradition of paying tribute to a Women’s Health Champion

Each year, our Women’s Health Champion will be someone who has championed the philanthropic work of BC Women’s Health Foundation in order to improve the health of women in BC. We are delighted to announce our first honouree was Dr. Mark Rosengarten, MBBCh, FRCSC, Obstetrician + Gynaecologist, Clinical Associate Professor UBC.

The Fund-A-Need portion of the program raised funds towards our $15 million Mature Women’s Health Campaign

 

This landmark initiative will propel research into mature women’s health and translate findings into better quality of life for women over 45. A key component of this Campaign is establishing a Professorship in Mature Women’s Health. The Professor will be the visionary leader who will develop the first dedicated clinical program for mature women in Western Canada, right here at BC Women’s Hospital + Health Centre. The Mature Women’s Health Program will bring together research, clinical care, practice, policy, and public education to support the health and well-being of women in BC.

Deborah Cox was our Headliner!

Deborah Cox is an award-winning recording artist, Canadian Music Hall of Fame inductee, and international talent spanning the worlds of music, Broadway, television, film, and fashion.
