An Opportunity to Show Your Generous Support of an Important Cause

We invite you to become an important part of Rockin’ for Research – a glamorous, high-profile event with a unique panache that has made it Vancouver’s most exciting Gala, year after year. With the help of generous donors like, you we raised $1.3 million last year and over $14 million in the past 17 years to support vital diabetes research.

Your generous support will help children with type 1 diabetes who must take over 1,000 insulin injections a year just to stay alive… and who must poke their fingers for blood tests at least 1,000 more times. These children are at risk of seizures from daily insulin reactions and, if not treated promptly, death can result. Insulin helps to manage type 1 diabetes, but does not prevent complications nor is it the cure. 

We welcome all donations small and large. These items are all very popular with our guests: 

Gift certificates for restaurants, hotels, retail stores, hair and spa products & services, sports, entertainment & theatre tickets, jewellery, crafts, fashion, clothing and accessories, vacation packages, children’s gifts, electronic equipment, gift baskets, wine, gourmet food baskets, pet gifts, housewares, appliances, seasonal items, art and unique experiences!
