The BIG 6
The Foundation runs 6 major events events during the year to help raise funds to keep healthcare strong in the Southwest
Keeping Local Healthcare Strong
Thank You to Steve and Donna Krause
The Charity Golf Classic was re-named the Darren McClelland Memorial Charity Classic in 2022 .
Strong community support from across southwest Saskatchewan helped the Dr. Noble Irwin Regional Healthcare Foundation to exceed the fundraising goal for the annual Radiothon. The 2022 Pharmasave Radiothon for Healthcare took place over two days on Oct. 27 and 28 with a goal to raise $150,000 for new medical equipment at Cypress Regional Hospital. The final total at the end of the live broadcast, which took place from the clubhouse at Elmwood golf course, was $152,600. These funds will be used to purchase equipment used to insert a peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC line) as well as a state-of-the-art blood assessment unit. A PICC line is used for patients that need to receive frequent treatment and medication. It can be used to administer chemotherapy drugs and other medication, to give blood transfusions, or to take blood samples. The blood analyzer will make it possible to perform tests during the assessment of bleeding patients and to identify patients at risk of bleeding. The availability of this technology at Cypress Regional Hospital will mean residents from the southwest area will not have to travel to Regina or Saskatoon for treatment.

After the last rib was served on Sunday, Living Sky Casino was thrilled to donate all of the leftover food from RibFest on behalf of the three fabulous Ribbers present: Blazin BBQ, Billy Bones BBQ & Buckeye BBQ. Lucky recipients of the food was the Canadian Mental Health Association Swift Current Branch who were amazed & so appreciative of the food they received.
