On Thursday, November 3rd, DMRF celebrated the inaugural Breakthrough Breakfast: Eggs, With a Side of Hope, at the Cunard Centre, along with hundreds of our friends.  

Created to recognize the important relationship that exists between donor and researcher, our first year honoured the important and generous contributions of Mr. Frank Sobey - a long time DMRF board member and recently retired board chair, who continues to support our Foundation through his time and resources.  Dr. Sultan Darvesh - the DMRF-Irene MacDonald Sobey Chair in Curative Approaches to Alzheimer’s Disease - shared news of his latest breakthrough in Alzheimer's research. 

Hosted by Bob and Tom Murphy of CBC Nova Scotia, guests joined together in celebration of research, philanthropy, and the impact DMRF is having on Halifax, the Maritimes and beyond.

Truly, the Breakthrough Breakfast was the most important meal of the year!

A very special thank you to our generous sponsors:
