Thank you to everyone that joined the Arthritis Society at the 2020 All-In for Arthritis Poker Gala at our new venue, the iconic Royal York Hotel in Toronto. The event was a resounding success raising an incredible $350,000 to support the diagnosis, treatment and search for a cure for arthritis. This brings our total to $4.15 million over the past 14 years of All-In for Arthritis in Toronto.

We’d also like to extend our thanks to the sponsors, steering committee, attendees and numerous volunteers whose significant contributions made this evening spectacular. Without the efforts of these special people, All-In for Arthritis wouldn’t have been possible.

Congratulations to the 2020 All-In for Arthritis Poker Gala Champion:
Adam Wainstock - Drudi Alexiou Kuchar LLP

 

We hope to see you next year for the 15th Annual All-In for Arthritis Poker Gala. For more information about the 2021 tournament, please contact:
