Nite of Hope 2013

The Nite of Hope™ is an elegant dinner, fashion show and silent auction evening held each Spring in Richmond, British Columbia for over 450 attendees. Each year a keynote speaker provides a moving and hopeful message regarding breast cancer. 2013 will mark the fifteenth annual gala Nite of Hope.

The event raises monies for resources and benefits the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation, BC/Yukon Chapter while also raising awareness to the devastating effects of breast cancer and provides support and encouragement to survivors.

Judi Miller began fundraising efforts twenty years ago in her home with all proceeds going to breast cancer research. Fifteen years ago, she decided to take the event into an evening format at a local Hotel, complete with entertainment, fashion show, silent auction items and a raffle. Judi has lost both her mother and young sister-in-law to the disease and decided to fight back.
