Cancellation of the 2020 Benefit Gala
Due to the circumstances currently prevailing with the COVID-19, we have decided to cancel this year’s Benefit Gala announced for May 30, 2020 at the Montreal Science Centre. The health and safety of our families, patients, donors, volunteers and the community are paramount to our Association. The situation is continually evolving, and this cancellation is necessary to allow AAFQ to do its part in the effort required by all to help slowing down the spread of the COVID-19.
As you know, for the last 20 years, the annual Gala has been our main source of funding. To help us replace this considerable loss of annual income which allows us to deliver activities in support of patients and their families, we ask that you continue to assist us with your precious and generous donations.
Stay tuned for more information about our next benefit event that we hope to hold in the near future. You will understand that we are unwillingly dependent on the present and future impacts of VIDOC-19.
In the meantime, take care of yourself and your family, and remain confident that we will get through these challenging times together.
The generosity of the partners plays a key role in the development and growth of the Sickle Cell Anemia Association of Quebec. Their support is invaluable. We thank them from the heart.
