North Battleford & Battleford Agencies Support ENT Surgery

April 28th 2017

North Battleford, SK – Battlefords Union Hospital (BUH) Foundation Inc. was honoured to be a recipient of North Battleford & Battleford Agencies charitable giving.  Their $2,500 contribution will support the Foundation’s upcoming On Air for Healthcare Radio-thon.  The 2017 On Air for Healthcare Radio-thon is in support of “Every Little Bit Counts” capital campaign.  This campaign is raising funds for the purchase of new Ears, Nose and Throat (ENT) surgical equipment.  The total fundraising goal is $380,000.


As recipients of Saskatchewan Mutual Insurance Company’s (SMI) charitable giving program, North Battleford & Battleford Agencies selected two charitable organizations to which to contribute a total of $5,000.00.  In order to qualify for SMI’s charitable giving program, North Battleford & Battleford Agencies had to meet specific performance requirements within their organization.  They were successful at this and were among the top 10 SMI brokers within, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba who received this award.


“Congratulations to North Battleford & Battleford Agencies on achieving this success.  You are to be commended for your efforts and we thank you for choosing BUH Foundation as a recipient of your donation.  Having an ENT specialist in our community is an important component in enhancing healthcare for The Battlefords and surrounding communities,” shares Mike Zaychkowsky, BUH Foundation Board of Directors Chairperson.


The On Air for Healthcare Radiothon will be held on Friday May 12 at BUH’s main lobby starting at 6:00am.  There are many ways you can become involved and the Foundation encourages anyone planning on donating to come and announce their support on the radio.  Please call 306 446 6652 for more information.
