Community Involvement

We at Barndog are very proud of being able to sponsor some local organizations as well as taking an active part in a few fundraising committees in Saskatoon.

We have been involved with the Festival of Trees in Saskatoon for at least 25 years.  Barndog is the audio, lighting and video sponsor for this great event.  We also design a tree, well Cheryl designs a tree, the company donates the materials for the tree, and then the tree is sold at the festival. 

Barndog has worked with the Royal University Hospital Foundation Gala since 2006. This is always a lively event with a theme that challenges us every time. Over the years we have turned the Adam Ballroom at the Bessborough Hotel into many things. We have done an “Under the Sea”, Austin Powers 60’s, Haunted House, Circus Tent and a Moonlight Masquerade theme to list a few. This event furthers the Royal University Hospital in both equipment and patient care. The fundraiser has since taken a break to refresh but hopefully will return soon.

Small But Mighty is a childhood cancer awareness organization that came to us to rent an audio system for their fundraiser The Gold Walk, which takes place in September of each year. Their funds are donated to Childhood Cancer Canada and they work tirelessly to make people aware of children diagnosed with cancer so that more research will be done for these types of cancer. When we became aware of their work we decided to donate their audio system as well. It’s a small thing we can do but every small thing helps.

Pink Gala is a new fundraiser for us, started in 2022.  It is in support of Breast Cancer research in Saskatchewan.  Jam packed with comedy, music, good food and of course auctions raising the much needed funding for local research.

We personally and through Barndog donate to various dog shelters and rescue organizations as dogs are a big part of our life, as shown by the company name lol. All of our dogs up until Dug the farm dog, are rescues we adopted through New Hope Dog Rescue so when they call for anything they need for the walkathon we are there for them. Cheryl Vickaryous
