Last Monday, May 13, the Cancer Research Society held its biggest fundraising event, the annual Urban BBQ, presented by RBC Royal Bank. Under the theme of The Boardwalk, this 2019 edition raised $ 600,000 net to support cancer research in Canada. These guests from Montreal’s business community gathered for a delicious and gourmet BBQ, created by guest chef Ricardo Larrivée and prepared by chef Marc-André Jetté and his team. From an exceptional auction, to artistic performances and quality networking, the stage was set for this special edition!
Since the beginning of the Urban BBQ, thousands of participants and corporate partners have raised close to $ 3 million for cancer research. “The funds we raise at the Urban BBQ are dedicated towards financing highly promising research projects, aiming at improving the way we detect, prevent and treat all types of cancer. This brings us closer to our goal of #OutsmartingCancer as soon as possible,” mentions Carolyne Lord, Director communications and marketing, at the Cancer Research Society.
