Monte Carlo Charity Gala - MUN Medicine

When: 
Saturday, November 28, 2020 - 7:00pm
Where: 
Virtual!

Since 1977, Monte Carlo has evolved into a major annual charity fundraiser that involves the community at large and raises funds for several deserving local charities. True to the spirit of its conception, Monte Carlo is the result of the passion, care, and dedication of Memorial University of Newfoundland's Faculty of Medicine. This year, we are pleased to announce that we are continuing the tradition of Monte Carlo with a virtual charity gala, hosted by the students of the Faculty of Medicine and presenting sponsor Diamond Design.

 

Date and Theme: Saturday, November 28th - The Roaring 20s! 

 

The 2020 selected charities:

- Dr. Jack Hand Legacy Foundation
