LIMITLESS gala sets Montreal Fundraising record
Gala event dedicated to celebrating the philanthropic partners who support the work of researchers at the Weizmann Institute of Science

On May 16 Weizmann Canada’s Montreal Chapter hosted a gala event dedicated to celebrating the philanthropic partners who support the work of researchers at the Weizmann Institute of Science. The event, called “LIMITLESS”, hosted more than 300 philanthropic leaders and members of the Montreal community.

Held at the historic Windsor Station, the dinner portion of the evening was held in a room transformed with floor to ceiling video screens which showcased immersive cinematography highlighting research work being undertaken in a variety of fields, including climate change. Dr. Einat Segev was the feature speaker of the event, sharing her important research on the relationship between marine bacteria and algae with predicting climate change. Watch Dr. Segev’s presentation.

The LIMITLESS event also provided attendees with the opportunity to support an area of research close to their heart, encouraging them to invest in the future by becoming a partner in Science for the Benefit of Humanity.

Thanks to the generous donations from our philanthropic partners, net of expenses, the evening celebrated gifts of $3.8 million to fund important research at the Weizmann Institute of Science, a fundraising record for the host city.
