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.
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 each year in March, the Greek Gourmet Feast stimulates your senses and supports priorities at Royal University Hospital.
The Royal Ball is a unique, creative evening that sets it apart from other gala events. The annual October ball uses a playful new theme each year, inspiring our guests to get into the spirit of the evening and dress creatively.
The FFUN Spirit Champions Classic charity golf tournament pairs avid golfers with top name celebrities from the hockey world. Partial proceeds from the event support the Mission Possible: Operation New O.R. Campaign to help build and equip new state-of-the-art operating rooms, reduce wait times and save and improve more lives at Royal University Hospital.
Launched in 2006, RUH Foundation’s Celebrity Golf Classic has raised over $1.7 million (net) for pressing priorities at Royal University Hospital. The generosity of athletes, sponsors, businesses and individuals help improve the lives of so many people from Saskatoon and across the province who require care at RUH.
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.
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?

Here’s a small sample of some of the annual third party fundraising events held in support of our Hospital:
Bryan Woods was a skilled and respected clinician, teacher and leader in the field of social work. For three decades, Bryan was highly respected as someone who supported his clients and colleagues with understanding, kindness, patience, gentle strength, dependability, professionalism and wit. After leaving Child and Youth Mental Health Services in 2001, he became the Director and Professional Leader of Social Work for the Saskatoon Health Region. Bryan lost his battle to cancer in October 2010, after being diagnosed with multiple myeloma in April 2009, and plasma cell leukemia in February 2010. He dealt with his illness in the same way he approached many of life’s challenges: with focus, determination, and hope.
June 28 is the day Paige UnRuh left the hospital following a cardiac event. To commemorate the occasion and give back to those who helped save her life, she holds the annual Hearty Starty event to help raise funds for cardiac care at Royal University Hospital.
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.
The Shake Rattle & Roll Motorcycle Rally for Parkinson’s Disease is an annual event held in St. Gregor, Saskatchewan. To date, this event has raised $40,000 for the Dr. Ali Rajput Endowment for Parkinson’s Disease and Movement Disorders Research at Royal University Hospital.
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.
Prevent & Recover from Heart Disease and JOIN the WALK OF LIFE! The Cardiac Health Foundation of Canada hosts a walk/run in various cities across Canada. Saskatoon’s Walk of Life is held annually in June.
Your Community. Your Health. Help us make a difference.
