Arthritis Research Canada is a world leader in finding answers and saving lives for the over 6 million Canadians affected by arthritis.

Why an ARThritis Soirée? Research has shown that art adds to one's wellbeing and therefore is a great element in managing chronic diseases on a holistic level. Each year the Soiree features a different art form to add excitement and depth to the event. Arthritis Research Canada is thrilled that Mike Reno – lead singer of the Juno award-winning rock band, Loverboy along with an all-star band will take the stage for this year's art form: music.
The ARThritis Soirée is co-hosted by Fred Lee, CBC Early Edition and The Province's Man About Town, and Sonia Deol, Global BC Reporter and Anchor. The evening is presented as an elegant cocktail reception, allowing guests to circulate and network while enjoying fabulous hors d'oeuvres, champagne and wine, an amazing raffle, exciting live and silent auctions, and of course an unforgettable performance by Mike Reno that will include some of Loverboy's greatest hits.
