15th Annual Give a Little Life Day Radiothon

Local healthcare, for our children, right here at home.

The Victoria Hospital Foundation, the Car Guys @ Mann Northway GM, and the Jim Pattison Broadcast Group are proud to announce the outstanding success of the 15th annual Give a Little Life Day Radiothon. The single-day, 12-hour radiothon was broadcast on three JPBG stations from 6 am—6 pm raising funds to equip the new NICU for the North at the Victoria Hospital in Prince Albert. The final total as of 6 pm on Friday, was $592,563.00 with donations still coming in online.

The “Little Lives-Local Love” initiative was launched this fall kicking off a 2.5 million dollar, multi-year campaign to raise money to equip and furnish the new NICU at the Victoria Hospital for every mother and newborn in the north.

The entire NICU project which includes the 2018 construction campaign and the current equipment campaign, is a total 5 million dollar investment into the healthcare of our newborns. The NICU for the North is 100% funded by the Victoria Hospital Foundation with the support of their local community.

“If there’s anything this pandemic has taught us, it’s that quality community-focused healthcare is more critical now than ever. We are humbled and grateful to our community for supporting this year’s fundraising effort. Keeping our most fragile babies and their families close to home, is our highest priority and our Foundation is committed to ensuring that our hospital can always deliver the best healthcare possible for our babies and children.”
Sherry Buckler, CEO Victoria Hospital Foundation

The Foundation thanks their 2020 presenting sponsor The Car Guys - Mann Northway GMC who announced an incredible gift of $72,000 to the campaign. In addition, Mann Northway also gave up one of their two drive-thru bays for the entire 12-hour event to provide a safe and contactless donation station for anyone wishing to donate in person.

“What an amazing and rewarding experience for everyone involved! We are so proud to be part of such an amazing and important cause. A huge success and thank you to everyone who donated and made an effort for our community.”
