Help us in the search for a cure and improved treatment of anaphylaxis.

Next year's fundraising contributions will support medical research projects and future scientific symposia. We are currently working on 2000s FACES OF ANAPHYLAXIS  Millennium Dinner, our third annual fundraising dinner to benefit the cause of anaphylaxis.

The Faces of Anaphylaxis Dinner held January 1998 raised over $40000; the 1999 dinner raised over $60000; the 2000 dinner raised over $80000.  These very successful events, featuring a 6 - course gourmet meal attended by 270 guests, were due to the inspiration of Heinz Siegenthaler. Our heartfelt thanks to all who supported this campaign through their attendance, donations, silent auction donations, raffle donations and purchases.  Special appreciation to the Anaphylaxis Network of Canada volunteers who's involvement made the silent auction possible.

The first Annual Golf Tournament took place on June 18th 1999 at ClubLink's Rattle Snake Point Golf Club.
