Tulips for the QEH

February 27 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

The annual “Tulips for the QEH” sale will be held on Thursday, February 27th.  It’s a wonderful opportunity for Islanders to brighten their work places and homes with colourful tulips from Vanco Farms.  New this year is all bouquets will be mixed-colour bouquets consisting of 10 tulips and will sell for $10 each.

Businesses and individuals are encouraged to pre-order their bouquets before Thursday, February 20th by calling the QEH Foundation office at 902-894-2425 or by emailing  Volunteers will offer free delivery to businesses in the Greater Charlottetown Area (including Cornwall and Stratford), with a minimum purchase of five bouquets. Pre-orders from individuals may be picked up on February 27th between 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. at the Foundation Office located in the QEH. Volunteers will also be selling tulip bouquets in the QEH lobby from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., or while supplies last.

All proceeds from this sale will support the purchase of a new CT Simulator for the PEI Cancer Treatment Centre at the QEH.  Of the approximate 1,000 Islanders diagnosed with cancer each year, half will require some type of radiation treatment.  The high-quality images produced with a new CT Simulator will allow health care professionals to identify the exact location, shape and size of the tumour to be treated.  The cost of the CT Simulator is approximately $1.5 million with $1 million already raised through the Foundation’s Friends for Life campaign.
