Oil a Thon in Support of the 30th Annual Z99 Radiothon
Great Canadian Oil Change Regina was pleased to support the annual Z99 Radiothon in 2017 which raised funds for the Rawlco Mother Baby Unit of the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit in the Regina General Hospital. A 36 hour “Oil a Thon” was held on February 2 & 3 at the Quance Street location where each oil change added up to more donations to this great cause. Our Albert Street and Quance Street locations also collected donations from January 1 to March 17.

Great Canadian Oil Change Regina was pleased to donate 10% of all electronic gift card sales during the month of December 2016 and 2017 to The Salvation Army here in Regina, Saskatchewan. We salute our customers for their support this month!
Hospitals of Regina – Neonatal Intensive Care Unit
Great Canadian Oil Change Quance and Albert locations are proud to support the Z99 Radio-Thon on March 17-18, 2016. For every oil change from February 10 to March 18 we will donate a portion to this great cause. We are also collecting donations from customers during this time period. We extend a huge thank you to our customers who make this support possible.
Relay For Life
Here at Great Canadian Oil Change, we are proud Luminary Sponsors of the Relay For Life, the second highest sponsorship level that raises between $5000-$7400. Our shop also purchases daffodils in support of Cancer Awareness. Finally, on May 13, 2012 at our Quance Street location, as well as May 19th, 2012 at our Rochdale location, we are partnering up with members of the Canadian Cancer Society and hosting a BBQ and Luminary Sale, with all proceeds going toward the Cancer Society. As well, we plan to donate $5 for every vehicle that enters each respective shop on the date of their BBQ.
Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame
The Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame was established to honour athletes and teams throughout Saskatchewan that have shown outstanding athletic ability in their respective sport. This fund is intended to remember individuals and teams that have contributed significantly to the history of Saskatchewan sports.
We attended their charity fundraiser this year and contributed to the funds raised. Our shops donate to this local company every year.
Canadian National Institute for the Blind
Every year, the Canadian National Institute for the Blind hosts a luncheon, as well as a golf tournament. Both fundraisers seek to raise awareness for vision impurities, as well as raise money to aid in the research and treatment of vision loss.
Through our shops, we sponsor the luncheon, as well as purchase a corporate table (the luncheon was held on May 3 of this year). We are also a Bronze Sponsor for the Dr. Paul Bookhalter Memorial Golf Tournament. In past years, we have contributed $500 and receive company recognition at the tournament. Our plan is to do the same thing this year.
Hospitals of Regina Foundation
In November 2010, the Hospitals of Regina Foundation helped open the Rawlco Centre for Mother Bay Care. This new unit is focused on family care and features state-of-the-art enhancements to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), the Labour and Birth Unit, as well as the Mother Baby Unit. This year, the Z99 Radio-Thon focused on raising money for the Rawlco Centre for Mother Baby Care.
Regina Great Canadian Oil Change is a proud donor of the Hospitals of Regina Foundation through the Z99 Radio-Thon. Between our Quance and Rochdale shops, we were able to contribute $2000 to the Z99 Radio-thon held March 17-18 of this year. Both our Quance and Rochdale shops contribute to this fund every year.
