Eric Gryba, #62 with the Edmonton Oilers, is putting his drive behind RUH Foundation to raise funds for the Campaign for Emergency, Critical Care and Trauma to help fund the new Trauma Program at Royal University Hospital.

GolfersThe tournament will tee off on June 14 with a Community Autograph Event hosted and held by Presenting Sponsor, FFUN Motor Group, at Acura Centre of Saskatoon (819 Melville Street) from 4 to 5 p.m., followed by a sponsor reception and celebrity auction. On June 15,  golfers will hit the links at Moon Lake Golf and Country Club.

Eric is bringing with him Chandler Stephenson, Josh Manson, Darcy Kuemper, Damon Severson, Brayden McNabb, Zack Smith, Dustin Tokarski, Darcy Hordichuk, Bernie Federko, Kelly Chase, Kevin Kaminski, Byron Bitz, and many more.

On average three to five trauma patients arrive at RUH Emergency Department (ED) every day: that’s over 1,000 critically injured people every year. Proceeds will help support a dedicated team of surgeons and medical staff to be on site to tend to the trauma patients, while other emergency patients in Saskatchewan’s busiest ED continue to receive care by ED physicians and staff who haven’t had to be pulled away to treat the trauma patient. The Trauma Program will decrease wait times, improve diagnosis, support treatment and save lives in the Emergency Department at RUH.

“This year, over 60,000 adults will arrive at RUH, the critical care and trauma Hospital for Saskatoon and northern and central Saskatchewan,” says Arla Gustafson, CEO, of RUH Foundation. “We are extremely grateful to Eric Gryba, his celebrity hockey friends, FFUN Motor Group, all sponsors and the planning committee for supporting this event – your generosity will go a long way in saving lives!”
