To ensure the safety of our supporters, sponsors, volunteers and staff, The Health Foundation has cancelled three major events planned for this summer: The Charity Golf Classic in June, Rhythm 'n Ribs in July and the Road Race and Community Walk in August.
These events have been successful fundraising events for the Foundation, but as importantly, have allowed us to have fun with friends and family.
If you have previously attended these events, or sponsored participants, we would greatly appreciate it if you would consideration making a donation instead.
Congratulations to the winners in The Health Foundations annual lottery. The draws were made at the Foundation office in Yorkton on Friday May 29.
Proceeds of the cash lottery are used to purchase medical equipment for the Yorkton Regional Hospital.
The winner of $1000 a Week for a Year was Dianne Olson of Melville.
The winner of $5000 was Alice Light of Yorkton.
There were five winners of $1000 each:
The 50/50 draw winner was Verna Baron of Canora. The winner receives $22,460, half the proceeds of the 50/50 sales.
A pandemic is something none of us have gone through before; it is a completely new experience and can be a little scary. We have been very fortunate here in Saskatchewan, but when we look at the world around us we see how devastating COVID-19 can be.
The equipment needed for COVID-19 is mostly being funded by government. There are a few secondary items needed to support patients, residents and frontline staff that the Health Authority has asked the Foundation to purchase. That equipment is for the Yorkton Regional Hospital and also the long-term care facilities in this region.
However, almost all the equipment for which we are raising funds this year will maintain and enhance the services available at the Yorkton Hospital.
The 14th annual GX94 and FOX FM Airwaves for Health Radiothon will be held April 27 and 28. Harvard Broadcasting covers all of the costs of the radiothon, so 100% of donations go toward buying medical equipment.
Cancelled for 2020
The annual Charity Golf Classic will be held at Deer Park Golf Course in Yorkton June 4. Golfers and sponsors raise money to buy medical equipment for facilities in the region.
Cancelled for 2020
The fourth barbeque and music festival is held July 24, 25 and 26 at the Exhibition Grounds in Yorkton. It is a free and family-friendly event with something for everyone.
Cancelled for 2020
Whether you want to run 2k, 5k, 10k or 21k and compete against others, or walk 5k at your own pace, the Charity Road Race and Community Walk lets you compete and contribute August 16.
The annual gala will be held October 4, with a unique theme. It's a much-anticipated late fall social evening with dinner, dancing, and a silent auction.
Each spring local agri-businesses and people seed the crop, and harvest it in fall. The result is that Farming for Health has raised more than $1 million in its first five years. And still going strong.
The Health Foundation greatly appreciates the support of individuals, businesses and organizations who make it possible for us to purchase critical equipment to improve healthcare throughout east-central Saskatchewan. Please consider making a donation today.
