Yukon Hospital Foundation hosts 2nd annual Dine Out Whitehorse
Whitehorse – Beginning Saturday, April 26, the Yukon Hospital Foundation is thrilled to host the 2nd annual Dine Out Whitehorse, presented by Evergreen Homes and Construction.
Between April 26th and May 3rd, sixteen amazing Whitehorse businesses will donate a portion of their sales back to the Yukon Hospital Foundation. Diners will be treated to a variety of culinary experiences, with some restaurants creating special menu items for the week, some featuring select items and others giving back a portion of all sales.
New this year, diners can pick-up a special Dine Out Whitehorse Passport. For each visit to a participating restaurant, diners will be entered into a draw to win a flight pass from Air North, Yukon’s Airline.
“Dine Out Whitehorse was a great success last year, we are excited to bring it back with even more restaurants participating in 2014,” enthused Yukon Hospital Foundation President, Krista Prochazka. “We all love to go out and eat, and through Dine Out, we have the chance to enjoy a delicious meal with family, friends and co-workers – while supporting a terrific cause! What a great reason to get out and enjoy the many culinary talents our local restaurants have to offer!”
Dine Out Whitehorse participating restaurants are: Antoinette’s, Blackbird Bakery, Birch and Bear, Burnt Toast, The Chocolate Claim, Cork and Bull, The Deck, Dirty Northern Public House, Earls Restaurant, Epic Pizza, The Goldpan Saloon, Sam N’Andy’s, Sanchez Cantina, The Wheelhouse and Whitehorse General Hospital Food Services. As well, Yukon Brewing will be donating back through sales of Yukon Holiday Kölsch featured in the Dine Out Menu at Earls Restaurant.
“We are thrilled to come back as presenting sponsor of Dine Out Whitehorse,” said Evergreen Homes Sales Manager, Maggie Wing. “The Yukon Hospital Foundation is definitely a fantastic cause that we take great pride in supporting.”
Established in 2005, the Yukon Hospital Foundation works under the direction of a volunteer board of directors to raise funds for equipment and programs for the Whitehorse General, Watson Lake Community and Dawson City Community hospitals. Purchases to date include heart monitoring, paediatric, operating room and digital imaging equipment, including the 128-slice CT scanner at Whitehorse General Hospital. The Foundation is currently purchasing a magnetic resonance machine, or MRI, that is planned to be operational in late 2014. The First Nations Health Program, the P.A.R.T.Y. Program and the Yukoners’ Cancer Care Fund are also supported by the Yukon Hospital Foundation.
