News & Events - Savour: Wine & Food Experience

The Health Sciences Centre Foundation has raised $548,065 to support patient care at HSC, thanks to donors and supporters who attended the ninth annual Savour: Wine & Food Experience, presented by Qualico and in partnership with Manitoba Liquor Marts. More than 570 guests enjoyed a lively evening of food, wine, entertainment, and décor inspired by South Africa on Saturday, February 23 at the RBC Convention Centre.

Our Fund-A-Need auction raised $200,000 for new specialized miniature telescopes and a lithotripter machine to better treat patients with kidney stones. These devices allow doctors to break up stones and then remove them through very small holes in the skin. The patient never has to pass the stone fragments through urination. The new equipment will mean less bleeding and less damage to the kidney. 
Thank you to all of our donors and attendees for their support!
