1000 Winnipeggers gathered at the Winnipeg Convention Centre on May 16th, 2011 to celebrate Joe Bova’s receiving the prestigious Scopus Award and to raise money for FASD research collaboration between the Hebrew University of Jerusalem’s Institute for Medical Research Israel-Canada and the University of Manitoba.

Under Jerusalem's SkiesCanadian Friends of the Hebrew University and the Province of Manitoba have each committed to funding this collaboration with $750,000 over the next 5 years, for a total of $1.5 million toward better understanding the factors behind fetal alcohol spectrum disorder to improve prevention techniques. The Scopus Award Gala raised $200,000 toward CFHU’s first year’s goal of $150,000.

Thank you to our guests and sponsors for your generosity, and to our volunteers and committee members for their tireless efforts at making this evening truly memorable. To find out more about this important project visit or call 942-3085.
