The 20th Annual Harry MacLauchlan ‘Great Day’ Fore Health Memorial Golf Tournament, with Presenting Sponsor Fair Isle Ford, will take place on Wednesday, June 14th, 2023 at Belvedere Golf Club. The Rotary Club of Charlottetown Royalty, together with the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Foundation, have dedicated much time and effort over the years to make this event a great success for our Island hospital, and we are grateful for the meaningful support our community has shown. This memorial tournament embodies many things that Harry MacLauchlan was passionate about. He was a proud member of the Rotary Club of Charlottetown Royalty, he fervently raised millions of dollars in support of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, and his favourite sporting activity was golf.

Over the past 18 years, this memorial tournament has raised over $850,000 for priority medical equipment at the QEH. Proceeds from the 2022 tournament will fully fund the purchase of hip arthroscopy equipment for the QEH, a surgical procedure that allows doctors to view the hip joint without making a large incision through the skin and other soft tissues. Prior to 2019 patients had to travel to Moncton or Halifax for this procedure. Now, it is performed 20 to 30 times each year at the QEH using equipment borrowed from off-Island each time. Having this equipment available in PEI would not only save on borrowing cost and logistics for the hospital, it would be available for the management of acute hip presentations, such as infections, which are currently managed with very large open incisions. The cost for the required hip arthroscopy equipment is approximately $80,000.

With an average of $6 million in priority medical equipment needs year after year, our expert QEH health care family relies on donors like you to help us raise these important funds. In addition, The Rotary Club of Charlottetown Royalty have made it their goal to achieve $1 million in cumulative fundraising by the tournament’s 20th anniversary this June.
