Cherishing a special 20-year Greek Gourmet Feast partnership with Manos Restaurant that’s raised $869,000 for patient care at RUH

March 14, 2019

SASKATOON – A great partnership is a rare and cherished thing. For 20 years, Bill, Manoli and Louis Barlas, along with their families and staff at Manos Restaurant and Lounge, have gone above and beyond in enriching patient care at Royal University Hospital and improving the quality of life for so many in our community.

As a result of the $69,000 (net) raised at the Royal University Hospital Foundation’s 35th Annual Greek Gourmet Feast presented by Nutrien on March 13, the Barlas’s have helped raise more than $869,000 (net) over the past two decades in support of innovative patient care, education and research at RUH.

“Giving back makes our souls, our families and our staff members who donate their time for the Feast, feel better,” says Bill. “When I go to RUH, I feel really good about being there and am so happy and grateful that for 20 years we have been able to support the patients and staff there.”

The Greek Gourmet Feast’s success was due to the generosity of the guests who attended the event, as well as the generous sponsors: Nutrien; Department of Medicine (Saskatchewan Health Authority and University of Saskatchewan College of Medicine); Manos; Ens Auto; Saskatoon Express; Golf’s Car Wash; PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP; Saskatchewan Blue Cross; S.O.
