Cut Knife Wildlife Federation Ladies' Golf Day Raises $11,900

August 28th 2018

Wednesday, August 8 was a beautiful hot day for the Cut Knife Wildlife Federation’s 1st Annual Ladies’ Golf Day.  This fundraising event, aptly titled “Wildlife Shooters are Aiming at Preserving the Hooters”, was in support of Battlefords Union Hospital (BUH) Foundation’s 2018/2019 capital campaign “We want to…Catch it!...Stop it!...Treat it!”  to purchase a new mammography unit for the Medical Imaging Department at BUH.

Gary Loranger, President of the Cut Knife Wildlife Federation noted “This event has been held by different organizers in the past.  The Cut Knife Wildlife Federation was very pleased to have taken it over this year, in support of such an important cause.  It is a good thing to keep our fundraising efforts local,” he then added “this event could not have been accomplished without the support through donations and sponsorship from local businesses and individuals, as well as the participants of the Golf Day.  We could not have been so successful without the help of our volunteers, including Mia Fairley and Twila Loranger, for all their time and effort.  This is our first event and we hope to continue it annually.  Thank you everyone.”

Claudette McGuire, Executive Director of BUH Foundation stated, “We are very grateful to the Wildlife Federation, donors and sponsors and especially all the ladies of the Golf Day.  You are an enthusiastic and generous group and we thank you.  This donation towards our capital campaign is an excellent start to get the ball rolling.”

Every year there are over 2000 mammograms completed in Medical Imaging at BUH.  Mammography is a specific type of breast imaging that uses low-dose radiation to detect breast cancer early – before men and women experience symptoms - when it is most treatable.  The current unit is over 10 years old and needs to be replaced.  Technology has advanced and we need to ensure that patients at BUH have access to the best of diagnostics and care. BUH Foundation’s Capital Campaign “We want to…Catch it!...Stop it!...Treat it!” is in support of raising over $500,000 for a new unit.  If you wish to know more about this campaign please call 306 446 6652 or email
