PIC Investment Group and the Yuel Family Announce Major Gift to the Children’s Hospital Foundation of Saskatchewan
PIC Investment Group and Yuel Family have announced their donation of 2.25 million dollars in support of the Children’s Hospital Foundation of Saskatchewan. This donation is a part of the Children’s Hospital Foundation’s Capital Campaign and will be used to create the PIC Investment Group and Yuel Family Outdoor Patient Play Area in Children’s Hospital of Saskatchewan.
“I am proud and humbled to be able to present this donation to the Children’s Hospital Foundation of Saskatchewan Capital Campaign,” says Greg Yuel on behalf of PIC Investment Group and Yuel Family. “This donation reflects both our company’s, and my family’s belief in the growth and potential of Saskatchewan. We recognize how important it is to give back to our province, and I am grateful that we can be a part of this project that will benefit so many.”
“Projects like the Children’s Hospital of Saskatchewan would not be possible without the generous support of private sector and individual donors across the entire province,” said Saskatoon Sutherland MLA Paul Merriman, on behalf of Health Minister Dustin Duncan. “We’re very grateful for the generosity of all those who recognize the value of having this facility in Saskatchewan to help ensure the health and well-being of future generations.”
“We are very appreciative of the Yuel Family and PIC Investment Group’s support in ensuring this outdoor play space is all that it should be for Saskatchewan children and their families, “ says Jim Rhode, Chair Saskatoon Regional Health Authority. “During the design of this hospital, Saskatoon Health Region has talked with, listened to, and clearly heard the voices of hundreds of children and teenagers around the province. That collective information has influenced design details that will make this hospital a true reflection of our province. Today’s donation will help ensure this space fulfills their vision.”
“The Children’s Hospital Foundation of Saskatchewan is incredibly grateful for the generosity of PIC Investment Group and the Yuel Family,” says Brynn Boback-Lane, President and CEO of the Children’s Hospital Foundation of Saskatchewan.
“This will be an area where our youngest Saskatchewan patients can enjoy some sunshine and relax in a special environment created just for them. A place where the inside of a hospital becomes an outdoor experience, away from treatments and allowing them to be kids again. This enhancement shows the extra and consideration and care that a children’s hospital will provide for Saskatchewan families.”
