Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital Foundation named official beneficiary of CP Women’s Open
“CP is very
proud to partner with the Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital for the 2018 CP Women’s Open,” said Keith Creel, CP President and CEO. “This is a natural partnership as CP is focused on hearth health through our community investment program,
CP Has Heart, and the Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital is focused on helping the youngest hearts across the great province of Saskatchewan – a province that has been integral to our network for more than 130 years.”
As one of only two provinces in Canada without a dedicated children’s hospital, Saskatchewan’s new
Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital will be a provincial hub for families, mothers-to-be, and the over 200,000 children living in Saskatchewan.
Scheduled to open in 2019, the hospital will be home to the province’s first dedicated pediatric surgical suites and first pediatric catheterization lab, which will be used to diagnose and treat many cardiac abnormalities without the need for open-heart surgery. It will also feature the province’s first pediatric sleep lab, hemodialysis room, outdoor play space, and a theatre.
To kick off the fundraising efforts, CP will match donations made towards the cardiology centre during the Making Spirits Bright Holiday Giving campaign, Nov 28-Dec 31.
The 2018 CP Women's Open will take place at the Wascana Country Club in Regina, August 20-26.
Canada's National Women's Open Championship has traditionally featured one of the strongest fields on the LPGA Tour vying for a total purse of $2.25 million USD, one of the largest purses on tour.
