A NIGHT OF INSPIRATION

The blue carpet is once again being rolled out for the 7th annual Kidney Gala, and for the first time in Gala history, the event will be held on a Friday evening!  

We are pleased to announce that our guests of honour and keynote speakers are Toby and Bernadine Boulet, parents of Logan Boulet.  Sadly and tragically, Logan was a victim of the Humboldt Broncos bus crash last April.  Prior to this tragic event, Logan expressed his wishes to be an organ donor.  As a result, Logan not only gave life to six individuals needing an organ transplant, but he has inspired a nation, with OVER 100,000 Canadians registering their organ donation wishes after his story went viral on the internet, resulting in the #LoganBouletEffect.

Emcee'd by Vancouver's "Man About Town", Fred Lee, and Sophie Lui, Anchor, Global News, join us on Friday, March 8, 2019, at the JW Marriott Parq Vancouver to honour Logan and his family and to continue to spread awareness around organ donation.

The JW Marriott Parq Vancouver has offered exclusive discounted rates for our guests.  There are only a limited number of rooms available, so book NOW!  Click here for more info.
