2020 Giving Hope Gala Postponed 


2020 Giving Hope Gala Postponed 

After careful consideration of the current situation with COVID-19, and keeping the health and safety of our patient community our top priority, we have decided to postpone our Giving Hope Gala this year, previously scheduled to be held in Vancouver on April 30, 2020.
What does this mean for you?
We will provide full refunds for all tickets purchased. Our team will be reaching out to ticket holders within the next several days to make arrangements.

Our team will also be reaching out to sponsors and vendors to make arrangements for bookings and in-kind donations within the next several days.

Travel and hotel arrangements made for you by the SYSF team will be canceled. Any travel or hotel arrangements made by you are your responsibility to cancel.

We thank all of our volunteers, sponsors, and of course, our patient community for their understanding and support around this decision.

You can reach us anytime at We’ll be pleased to respond as quickly as possible.

If you still wish to make a donation on behalf of this year’s gala, you may do so HERE.

We hope everyone remains safe during this unique situation. We strongly encourage everyone, especially individuals at high risk such as those with compromised immune systems and chronic health issues, to familiarize themselves with the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention available HERE.
