Why ARThritis Soirée?

The ARThritis Soirée is an evening designed to attract the city’s most prominent business and community leaders, philanthropists, doctors, scientists, healthcare professionals, and donors through 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 the amazing world-renowned violinist Jenny Bae, accompanied by members of the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, as the evening’s entertainment.
