Children’s Hospital Radiothon – Saskatoon

The Children’s Hospital Radiothon in Saskatoon is a three-day live radio broadcast airing on 600 CJWW, 98COOL FM, and 92.9 The Bull. This annual fundraiser requires approximately 200 volunteers to fill phone bank shifts, take on-site pledges, verify and process pledges, and other activities (all generally during a 2-3 hour shift).

Children’s Hospital Radiothon – Regina

The Children’s Hospital Radiothon in Regina is a two-day live radio broadcast airing on 620CKRM, MY92.1, and 104.9 The Wolf. Southern Saskatchewan’s largest annual fundraiser for Children’s requires over 100 volunteers to fill phone bank shifts, take on-site pledges, make outbound calls, verify and process pledges, and other activities (during 2-3 hour shifts). Learn more about the Regina Radiothon.

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 Speaker’s Bureau

Speaker’s Bureau 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.

Members of our Speaker’s Bureau are:

Jammin’ 4 Kids School Program

Children’s is seeking Saskatchewan teachers who would be interested creating lesson plan templates for our school-based fundraising program, Jammin’ 4 Kids.

Office Administration

Occasionally, we need volunteers to help with general office tasks like stuffing envelopes, preparing information packages, data entry, and answering telephones. 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!

Community Events

Many of community fundraisers in support of Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital Foundation need volunteers. Visit our Events page if you would like to know more about our upcoming events.
