Children’s Hospital Jeans & Jewels Gala
Over 650 guests attend Children’s signature fundraiser each April. The gala is well known for its fun and relaxed atmosphere, delicious food, entertainment, and incredible live and silent auction items. Putting on an event of this scale requires a lot of support, and Children’s relies on the dedication of more than 100 volunteers to help with pre-event committee work, set-up and take-down, silent auction payment, raffle sales, guest registration, and the construction of decor items.

Jammin’ 4 Kids School Program
Children’s is seeking Saskatchewan teachers who would be interested creating lesson plan templates for our school-based fundraising program, Jammin’ 4 Kids.
Occasionally, Children’s requires volunteers to help with general office tasks like stuffing envelopes, preparing information packages, data entry, and answering telephones. This work is on an on-call basis.
Dr. Marcus Wellbear
Dr. Marcus Wellbear is a friendly bear with a busy schedule! Children’s is always looking for outgoing volunteers to wear our mascot costume at the many special events where Marcus is invited to come and play. Being Marcus is a great way to support the image of the Foundation. It’s a fun way to be imaginative, engaging and energetic . . . and a great excuse for clowning around!
