11 November 2023 — Masked Evening
Initiated by Dr. Jean-Paul Bahary in 2015, this colorful signature event is distinguished by its most unique immersive experience. This evening has the originality of changing the theme and research project for each of its editions.
Support the funding of cancer research
7th EDITION OF THE MASKED EVENING
This year, true to form, the event will propel you into a total and paradise immersion. Featuring a unique theme, the Soirée Masquée will take you back to the colourful pastellis of the 1980s. Immerse yourself in a colourful discotheque, take out your best costumes and enjoy an idyllic experience, reliving your best memories with the sounds of the greatest success of that time.
In the form of a cocktail reception and a dancing party, the Soirée Masquée will take you to its radiant and enchanting world. This year, the proceeds raised will support an artificial intelligence research program to improve care for cancer patients. They will purchase servers to help predict cancer response, personalize treatments and reduce side effects in ENT, lung, digestive, prostate and brain cancers.
This fabulous evening will take place on November 11, 2023, at TOHU in Montreal, starting at 7 p.m.
Since 2015, $ 544,600 has been invested in research projects and the purchase of specialized equipment.
