Yukon Hospital Foundation introduces Dine-Out Whitehorse

4/16/2013

The Yukon Hospital Foundation is pleased to introduce its newest fundraiser - Dine-Out Whitehorse, presented by Evergreen Homes and Construction.

Between April 20th and 27th, eleven amazing Whitehorse restaurants will donate a portion of their sales back to the Yukon Hospital Foundation. Some from the sale of any menu item, others will feature select menu items that will benefit the Foundation; several have created special items for the week.

“We know Yukoners love culinary experiences, and for years the community – and our restauranteurs – have been amazing supporters of our Epicurious event. This year, we wanted to try something different, to encourage people to get out and enjoy the many local restaurants our city has to offer,” explained Yukon Hospital Foundation President Krista Prochazka. “We were so pleased with the enthusiastic response from the participating restaurants and we are grateful for their generous contributions.”

Dine-out Whitehorse participating restaurants are: The Deli, Earls, Morels, The Goldpan Saloon, Burnt Toast, Sam n’ Andy’s, Lil’s Place, Volare, Sanchez Cantina, Steele Street Lounge & Restaurant and Antoinette’s.

“We are absolutely thrilled to be the Presenting Sponsor of this fantastic event,” enthused Evergreen Homes Planning and Marketing Director, Jeff Barrett. “Supporting the Yukon Hospital Foundation is a great cause we really believe in.”

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 Yukon Hospital Corporation. Purchases to date include heart monitoring, pediatric, operating room and digital imaging equipment including the 128-slice CT scanner for the Whitehorse General Hospital. The Foundation will be purchasing a magnetic resonance machine, or MRI, later this year. The Yukon Hospital Foundation also supports the First Nations Health Program, the P.A.R.T.Y. Program, the Yukoners Cancer Care Fund and the Watson Lake and Dawson City Community Hospitals.
