The 65_RedRoses Gala Screening: Celebrating 10 Years

Welcome to our fundraising page!

The 65_RedRoses Gala Screening: Celebrating 10 Years is a one night only event celebrating the legacy of BC icon Eva Markvoort and the movement she created for organ donation and CF awareness with the launch of her documentary ten years ago. Within those ten years, 65_RedRoses has moved and inspired audiences all across Canada to donate millions of dollars to Cystic Fibrosis research while causing organ donation rates to triple in British Columbia and in turn saving countless lives.

This fundraising event will be taking place at the Vancouver Playhouse Theatre, on the evening of September 8th 2019. It will bring together inspiring speakers, special musical guests and a screening of the award-winning film that started it all. 

Please join me by making a donation! Donations will benefit the Transplant Research Foundation of British Columbia, a partner of VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation. 

The Transplant Research Foundation of BC is dedicated to funding innovative organ donation and solid organ transplant research. Since 2009, TRF has provided more than $650,000 to BC based researchers with the goal of improving outcomes and enhancing quality of life for transplant recipients.

VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation is Vancouver Coastal Health’s primary philanthropic partner, raising funds for specialized adult health services and research for all British Columbians. We partner with donors to drive innovation and sustainable health care at VGH & UBC Hospital, GF Strong Rehab Centre, Vancouver Coastal Health Research Institute and Vancouver Community Health Services.
