The inaugural Goodman Cancer Research Gala, in support of the Rosalind and Morris Goodman Cancer Research Centre (GCRC), took place under a giant tent on McGill University’s lower campus on Saturday, June 5, 2010. The event brought together more than 700 guests and raised over $2.5 million in support of the GCRC and its pivotal role in unraveling the mysteries of cancer and translating discoveries into better patient care.

The Gala was the brainchild of Rosalind Goodman, a McGill graduate and cancer survivor who, along with her husband Morris, made a transformative gift to McGill’s Faculty of Medicine in 2008 to reenergize cancer research at the University.
