Graham and Ruby DeLaet Foundation Donates to the Weyburn & District Hospital Foundation
(October 17, 2016) – – Weyburn & District Hospital Foundation (WDHF) Board Chair, Michael Hoffman, announced today that a donation of $30,000 has been received from the Graham and Ruby DeLaet Foundation.
Mr. Hoffman went on to state that “Graham was an early supporter of WDHF and was instrumental in the success of our inaugural Golf Tournament and Fundraising Dinner held in 2011. During the two years that Graham was involved with the event more than $735,000 was raised. Without his support, we could not have reached this level of success.”
The Graham and Ruby DeLaet Foundation is focused on improving the health and wellness of children, as well as supporting the development of junior golfers at all stages. Founded in 2014, The Foundation has supported and provided valuable charitable contributions to Help Fill a Dream, The Children’s Wish Foundation, Ronald McDonald House of Saskatchewan, Children’s Hospital Foundation of Saskatchewan, Golf Saskatchewan and the Weyburn & District Hospital Foundation.
“Ruby and I are pleased to be able to donate these funds to assist with the development of the new hospital in Weyburn,” said Graham DeLaet. “Growing up in Weyburn, I know what a great community we have, which can be seen in the ongoing support of the WDHF. I also know how much a new facility with state of the art equipment is needed in order to keep our community healthy, so we are happy to do whatever we can to help.”
The Weyburn & District Hospital Foundation Inc, founded in 2008, continues to raise funds to meet its objective of building and equipping a new hospital for Weyburn and the surrounding area. To date, WDHF has raised close to $22 million towards our goal. The hospital in Weyburn has provided over 60 years of quality health care, however, the need for a new facility containing state of the art diagnostic equipment is evident.
The Foundation wishes to thank Graham and Ruby DeLaet for their generous donation and continued support, which clearly recognizes the need for a new facility to serve the people of the Weyburn community.
