Provincial Children’s Hospital Radiothon Raises $750,109
Donors from across the province helped raise $750,109 in just two short days at the first-ever province-wide Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital Radiothon presented by CIBC Wood Gundy.
The event was broadcast live from the main lobby of Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital by 16 different radio stations from across Saskatchewan. Donations from this year’s event will support the babies, kids, moms-to-be and families across Saskatchewan who need specialized care as close to home as possible.
“Thank you to each person who picked up the phone or went online to donate to this year’s provincial Radiothon. We are forever grateful for your incredible generosity,” said Brynn Boback-Lane, President and CEO of Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital Foundation. “This hospital is making such a difference in the lives of Saskatchewan children and families, and your support will ensure that it continues to be a world-class centre.”
The Foundation would like to thank our presenting sponsor CIBC Wood Gundy, the many volunteers, donors, and families across Saskatchewan, along with sponsors Nutrien, CP Rail, Save on Foods, Daytona Homes, Affinity Credit Union, SIGA, Saskmilk, Viterra, Enbridge, Kal Tire, SaskTel, GMR Electric Motors, Geransky Bros.
