2022 ARThritis Soirée – Get Your Tickets Today!


February 23, 2022 (Vancouver, BC): Arthritis Research Canada is thrilled to announce the return of its signature fundraising event, the ARThritis Soirée, to The Roof, Hotel Vancouver on May 26, 2022. Early bird tickets are now available at arthritissoiree.ca.

We are excited that, with the vaccine passport program in place, guests can gather in-person for the first time since 2019 to support life-changing arthritis research. The health and safety of attendees and volunteers will be our highest priority.

Guests will enjoy an elegant evening that includes great networking, fabulous hors d’oeuvres, champagne and BC wines, an amazing Prize Draw donated by Montecristo Jewellers, exciting live and silent auctions, and awesome music.

Arthritis Research Canada is delighted to announce that Angela Kelman, lead singer of Farmer’s Daughter, will be performing at this year’s ARThritis Soirée.

Why an ARThritis Soirée? Research has shown that art adds to one’s wellbeing and can play an important role in managing chronic disease. Moreover, art adds an extra factor of excitement and depth to the Soirée and has been an integral part of our event each year.

Arthritis Research Canada is grateful to Royal Bank of Canada for joining us as this year’s Presenting Sponsor. RBC is committed to creating positive social impact in communities and willingly brings their company and networks together to tackle big issues of today and tomorrow.

“Every day, clients talk to us about their goals and aspirations for their families, businesses and communities. We listen and learn about the challenges and opportunities facing society so that we can respond,” said Martin Thibodeau, Regional President British Columbia, RBC Royal Bank. “Arthritis impacts over 6 million Canadians and arthritis research helps them continue to live life and reach goals. Arthritis is a big problem for society, so we’re happy to get behind this important cause.”
