Helicopter Golf Ball Drop Raffle
This year we are very excited to announce the Helicopter Golf Ball Drop! A Summit Air helicopter will be lifting off and dropping golf balls over a putting green. There will be six markers on this putting green, and each marker will match a fantastic prize. The closest golf ball to a marker wins! Finning Canada has provided us with 1000 golf balls, so we will be selling 1000 tickets. Tickets are only $20 or 3 for $50, so hurry up and get yours today! You do not have to be onsite on June 10th to win.
Call us directly at 444-8330 or 766-7289

1) Trip for 6 to Namushka Lodge – Flight with Summit Air/Lodging and fishing Namushka Lodge, and dinner supplied by Diamante Restaurant
2) Diamond – Diavik Diamonds
3) Medium Green Egg BBQ – Corothers Home Hardware

6) Year supply of Coke Products – Yellowknife Beverages (2 cases per month for 12 months)
The main goal of the Stanton Territorial Hospital Foundation is to raise money in the support of patient care, equipment, and other major needs at our hospital. There’s nothing more important than health care, and as our previous fundraising success has shown, it seems a lot of northerners agree with us! All money fundraised from the golf ball drop and tournament will go towards supporting our Dialysis Campaign for improved Dialysis services and equipment at the Stanton Hospital.
In the winter there have been events such as the Northwestel Festival of Giving, which raised $130,000 this past year. Another fantastic event is the CIBC Run For Our Lives Event – Walk/Run/Fun, planned for October 2nd, which fund raises for all cancers now. In the past they raised over a million dollars to purchase a mammography machine!
In the summer, we hold the Stanton Territorial Hospital Foundation Charity Golf Tournament. This has evolved over the years into a key fundraising event for the Foundation. Just like much of Yellowknife, we enjoy playing golf in the summer, so why not play for a great cause!
This year’s Stanton Territorial Hospital Foundation Charity Golf Tournament is Friday, June 10. It’s $100/person to enter and while we love teams of four, we’re happy to place individuals or couples on a team.
The entry deadline is Friday, June 3, so sign up soon! Or become a sponsor and get free entry for your team!
Here are three ways you can support the Foundation at this fun and worthwhile event:

Looking for silent and live auction items as well as other great sponsorship opportunities – the Banquet/Dinner, Eagle, Hole-in-One sponsors. Sponsors get free entry to enjoy some fun in the sun!
Any volunteer help is greatly appreciated. We are looking for hole in one spotters, people to sell raffle tickets, and assistance with setup/tear down.
