Event Description

In September 2017, we cut the red ribbon to inaugurate the Azrieli Heart Centre. The Azrieli's made this possible thanks to their $20 million gift. Their Foundation provided an extra $5 million for a new intensive care facility. And some years ago they created a fellow's program at the JGH that serves to train young physicians. The combined $26 million gift ranks as one of the most generous acts of philanthropy in the history of the JGH, but it doesn't end there.

On June 18, 2018 you have the opportunity to join the Azrieli Foundation at our annual gala. Save the date for this important event. We are counting on your contribution to raise an extra $1 million net. The Azrieli Foundation will match that amount to the benefit of the Lady Davis Institute (LDI). Inspired by their commitment to support medical research, they will be creating an endowment fund, called The Azrieli LDI Director's Research Fund.

We are very proud of the LDI. Did you know the international scientific community recognizes the LDI for being a trailblazer? Its investigators have earned many distinguished awards. Its staff is already doing amazing research in fields like AIDS, Alzheimer disease, cancer and aging. Moving forward, the LDI will be putting a greater focus on stem cell research; this is the exciting new frontier of a medical revolution! It is the key to understanding and curing disease.

Delivering on the promise of research, in the face of increasingly scarce resources, requires support from the entire community. We hope to see you on June 18. Help us open the door to the frontier of a medical revolution.
