Twenty-one NHL, CFL, Olympic soccer, Pan American sprint kayaking, and blind golf athletes joined local businesses and individuals at Royal University Hospital Foundation’s 12th annual Celebrity Golf Classic presented by FFUN Motor Group raising $103,000 (net). Thanks to the generous dollar-for-dollar match by the Irene and Leslie Dubé Foundation the Classic raised $206,000.
Proceeds from the RUH Foundation’s Celebrity Golf Classic will support RUH Foundation’s $20 million GREATE.R. Campaign for the critical health care needs of patients and their families who arrive to Saskatchewan’s busiest Emergency Department at RUH. As a priority of The GREAT.E.R. Campaign, RUH Foundation is raising $2 million to build and equip a new Mental Health Assessment & Short Stay Unit adjacent to the current Emergency Department. You will help save lives and ensure FASTE.R. response times, STRONGE.R. teams and NEWE.R. equipment.
