Children’s Hospital Jeans & Jewels Gala

Over 650 guests attend our signature fundraiser each April. The gala is well known for its fun and relaxed atmosphere, delicious food, entertainment and incredible live and silent auction items. Putting on an event of this scale requires a lot of support, and we rely on the dedication of more than 100 volunteers to help with pre-event committee work, set-up and take-down, silent auction payment, raffle sales, guest registration, and the construction of decor items.

Children’s Hospital Ambassador

This volunteer opportunity consists of people from across Saskatchewan who act as representatives for Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital Foundation at various events throughout the year. Our speakers have compelling stories that tie into the work of Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital Foundation and they speak to the need for a dedicated maternal and children’s hospital for Saskatchewan by sharing their personal experiences. They help our supporters understand the impact their donations are making – today and in the future.

Our ambassadors are:

Young Heroes League School Fundraising Program

Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital Foundation is seeking Saskatchewan teachers who would be interested in planning a fundraiser with their class for our school-based fundraising program, Young Heroes League.

Office Administration

Occasionally, we need volunteers to help with general office tasks like stuffing envelopes, preparing information packages, data entry, answering telephones and preparing seasonal gift bags for kids in hospital. This work is on an on-call basis.

Dr. Marcus Wellbear

Dr. Marcus Wellbear is a friendly bear with a busy schedule! We are always looking for outgoing volunteers to wear our mascot costume at the many special events where Marcus is invited to come and play. Being Marcus is a great way to support the image of the Foundation. It’s a fun way to be imaginative, engaging and energetic . . . and a great excuse for clowning around!
