8th International Pub Night 2017

The 8th International Pub Night Friday took place at Daniels Spectrum in Toronto on Friday April 28, 2017.  Co-founded by Kirsten Cooney and supported by her husband, John Cooney, it honours the gift of life.  The evening raised both awareness of the critical importance of organ donation as well as much-needed funds for the world-renowned Multi-Organ Transplant Program at University Health Network (UHN).  It was hosted by CBC’s award-winning TV show Kim’s Convenience, Paul Sun-Hyung Lee.  The event featured interesting food stations (see photos), a silent auction and musical entertainment.  There were inspiring speeches from Dr. Nazi Selzner and her 19 year old liver transplant recipient, Anson Hui who played the piano, Dr. Ian McFilbrary and key note speaker Andrea Norgate.

It was a great event for a worthy cause.

About the International Pub Night:
“The mission of International Pub Night is to raise money for the Jürgen Mummenhoff Memorial Fund in Transplantation, established in 2008 at the Toronto General & Western Hospital Foundation. Although taken away from us much too soon, we were so very grateful of the extra 15 years that we were given with Jürgen, through the gift of life that he received when he underwent liver transplant surgery in March 1993. Jürgen was so deeply appreciative of his second chance at life and truly made the best of his gift.
“Since 2009, International Pub Night has raised $131,000 for the Transplant Program at Toronto General Hospital, a member of the University Health Network. Everyday, these surgeons, researchers and educators are giving Canadians and people from around the world a second chance at life. The largest in Canada, with specialties in clinical care, diagnosis, research and support services, the program’s high standard of care rivals any other program of its kind in the world.
