Revolving Tables 2018

MARCH 8TH, 2018 | THE FOUR SEASONS HOTEL

Revolving Tables is a social and networking event for a cause – hosting roughly 300 young professionals, the event aims to raise awareness and funds for Israel Cancer Research Fund as well as provide an evening of professional growth and social exchange.

Over a 3-course meal, participants have the opportunity to meet other young professionals and engage with renowned Canadian executives and community leaders; we call them our “mentors”. At each course, the young professionals rotate tables offering a new and exclusive opportunity to interact with a new mentor.

The Cause

Israel Cancer Research Fund (ICRF) was founded in 1975 with the goal of finding treatments and cures for all forms of cancer, utilizing the unique benefits Israel’s scientists have to offer. Today, ICRF continues in its mission to harness Israel’s educational and scientific resources in the fight against cancer by providing funds for post-doctoral fellowships for young Israeli MD’s and PhDs. Since its inception, ICRF has awarded nearly 2,300 grants valued at $63 million US directly to Israeli scientists.
