Current Events and Campaigns

In 2017 our national events raised over $1.3 million dollars toward our goals of supporting life-saving research and educational programs for the millions of Canadians affected by liver disease.

Our two signature events, LIVERight Gala and STROLL For LIVER, bring excitement and much-needed fundraising to support our mission of bringing liver research to life for all Canadians. Plan to be a part of these worthwhile events in Alberta in 2018.

LIVERight Gala Recap

Calgary 4th Annual LIVERight Gala was a great success! This annual fundraiser event took place on Friday, November 24th, providing guests a night of top notch entertainment, gourmet food and a live performance by The Matt Blais Band! The evening was alive with exciting performances, prize draws, silent and live auctions, and award ceremonies honouring the Multidisciplinary Team for Liver Cancer at the Tom Baker Cancer Centre. Thanks to our sponsors, donors, and attendees, together we raised over $70,000!

Thank you for attending the LIVERight Gala in Calgary and making liver health your cause for celebration! Stay tuned for details on our LIVERight Gala 2018!
