Once Upon a Cure, a Gala for Hunter Syndrome Research

Just like Alice plunged into Wonderland, all families diagnosed with MPS II are plunged into a world previously unknown to them that they must learn to navigate. Just like Alice,  this world is beautiful and nightmarish at the same time. The beauty and joy of life is never more clear than when the life of one’s child is threatened.
Join us for a truly unique, wonderful, and maybe even unpredictable, Gala where we will journey into Wonderland for just one evening. Share in celebrating the joy of life and raising critically needed funds for research.
Saturday September 24, 2011
Cocktail reception to begin at six o’clock with dinner and evening festivities to follow.
The Sutton Place Hotel
845 Burrard St Vancouver, BC
It will be an exciting and glamorous evening filled with twists and turns as we journey down the rabbit hole and experience a world of magical proportions, with 95% of all proceeds going straight towards MPS II research. This memorable Gala event will include cocktails, dinner and auction, musical performances, acrobats, jugglers, special guest speakers and an incredible chocoholic dessert buffet.
The guest list will include 200+ local and international business entrepreneurs, philanthropists, community leaders and supporters from various walks of life. We are also pleased to have members of the film and TV industry committed to attending and being a part of our fundraising effort.
