Galas & Cabarets

Thank you to our sponsors, partners, confirmed gala attendees, and key stakeholders who have been supporting Muscular Dystrophy Canada through the Montreal Gala, Montreal Cabaret, and Toronto Cabaret each year.

Your safety and well-being is our top priority, so we’ve made the difficult decision to cancel these events for 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Galas and Cabarets raise significant fundraising dollars that are used to fund research and offer critical programs and services to over 30,000 Canadians who are impacted by neuromuscular disorders. These programs include adjusting and coping, navigating and accessing resources, alleviating financial pressures by funding critical life changing assistive devices, education and working with partners to influence positive changes to public policy.

During these ever-changing times, the neuromuscular community needs our support now more than ever. Since the COVID-19 pandemic was declared in March, MDC has had a drastic increase in demand for support with accessing resources to deal with quality of life and overall well-being; an increase in emotional and coping support related to COVID-19; funding for respiratory equipment, and three times the increase in requests for health-specific information related to the diverse complex needs of our community.

MDC’s priority is the health and safety of our stakeholders, this has resulted in the cancellations of major fundraising events. Our ability to raise funds to continue to meet the needs of our community has drastically reduced. If you are in a position to consider supporting MDC by changing your ticket purchase or sponsorship into a donation, please contact Kevin Harrison at kevin.harrison@muscle.ca or by phone at 1-800-567-2873 ext. 6158. These unprecedented times are challenging for us all, on behalf of the neuromuscular community thank you for your unwavering support and stay safe.
