By Devon Sokoloski - January 3, 2018

The Special Events department at the Health Sciences Foundation is hard at work planning our events for 2018. The Bachelors for Hope Charity Auction is right around the corner on Friday, April 13. From there we will host the ever popular Tbaytel Motorcycle Ride for Dad, which falls on the Saturday before Father’s Day every year. In the fall we present the always-inspiring Tbaytel Luncheon of Hope, and finish off the year with our annual gala, the Resolute Save a Heart Ball. For 2018, we are looking forward to making some new and exciting changes to our events to make them better than ever.

In addition to these events, the Special Events department also assists with many outstanding community events throughout the year - and we are extremely grateful for the support we receive throughout our region. Each week there is at least one – and often several - community initiatives supporting the Health Sciences Foundation, from bake sales to head shavings to marathons. Fundraisers are able to designate their proceeds to a specific fund, including one of our specialty funds (Northern Cardiac Fund, Northern Cancer Fund, or the Health Sciences Discovery Fund) or any other area of care that they are passionate about.

When we report a dollar amount raised at our events – often seen on the infamous “big cheque” photo – we have already accounted for our expenses. In other words, every dollar on that big cheque is dedicated to supporting and improving health care in Northwestern Ontario. Thanks to the hard work of our planning committees and volunteers, along with the generous support of the community, event attendees, and sponsors, these events raise hundreds of thousands of dollars every year. We are proud to say that 100% of these funds stay in the region to support health care right here at home.

Besides planning a fundraiser or attending one of our events, you can also support the Health Sciences Foundation by joining a Committee or volunteering. It takes a lot of work and hours to plan and execute a successful event, but the results are extremely rewarding. If you have an idea for an event or would like to learn more about how you can become involved, contact Devon, Elaine or Joanna in the Special Events Department at 345-4673 or info@healthsciencesfoundation.ca.
