The RUH Foundation hosts several special annual events to support pressing priorities at Royal University Hospital. Everyone has a good time while raising funds for the community.
Greek Gourmet Feast
If you like gourmet food, entertainment and fun (and who doesn’t!) then you don’t want to miss this premier event! Hosted by Manos and held this year in June, the Greek Gourmet Feast stimulates your senses and supports priorities at Royal University Hospital.
FFUN Spirit Champions Classic
The annual FFUN Spirit Champions Classic charity golf tournament pairs avid golfers with top name celebrities from the hockey world! Partial proceeds from the event support priorities at Royal University Hospital to help advance patient care, education and research at RUH in Saskatoon. The result: better, faster, and safer treatment and care for you and your loved ones.
Hospital Home Lottery
Since Hospital Home Lottery’s inception in 1986, it has raised nearly $41.3 million for healthcare in Saskatoon. In that time, Hospital Home Lottery has helped the RUH Foundation with several campaigns, allowing us to invest in patient care, research, teaching and equipment.
Many of our generous donors host their own events to raise funds and awareness for the Royal University Hospital. Thank you!

Here’s a small sample of some of the annual third party fundraising events held in support of our Hospital:
Purple Day for Epilepsy
Founded in 2008, by then nine-year old Cassidy Megan of Nova Scotia, Purple Day is an international grassroots effort dedicated to increasing awareness about epilepsy worldwide. On March 26th annually, people in countries around the world are invited to wear purple and host events in support of epilepsy awareness.
10,000 Kettlebell Challenge
The idea of doing 10,000 kettlebells in a one-month period is quite a physical challenge, but it is possible. And a project that raises awareness about Parkinson’s disease and provides a direct opportunity for people to financially support Parkinson’s research is definitely winning solution.
We’ve all heard of Black Friday and Cyber Monday but did you know about a day dedicated to giving – when charities, individuals and companies came together for GivingTuesday?
Your Community. Your Health. Help us make a difference.
