Harry MacLauchlan ‘Great Day’ Fore Health Memorial Golf Tournament Raises Over $53,000 for the QEH

Harry MacLauchlan ‘Great Day’ Fore Health 15th annual golf tournament was held at Belvedere Golf Club on June 13, in memory of Rotarian Harry MacLauchlan. With the participation of 32 teams and sponsors, $53,750 was raised for the Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

“At some point most Islanders have needed or will need the QEH, so everybody involved, from prize donors, sponsors, auction buyers and golfers, should feel proud in supporting our province’s main referral hospital,” says Jamie Currie, Event Co-Chair.

This event is a signature fundraising event for the QEH, and supports the purchase of priority medical equipment. “This year funds raised, from the generosity of all those involved, will go towards the purchase of a new urology laser for the QEH surgical suite,” says Bob Sear, QEH Foundation Board Chair.

Fair Isle Ford made a three-year commitment as presenting sponsor and further demonstrated their support as a hole-in-one sponsor. Additional sponsorship included corporate sponsors Scotiabank/ScotiaMcLeod and Island Petroleum, and lifeline sponsors Johnson Inc. and Canadian Tire Charlottetown.

The winning team was MRSB, with team members Everett Roche, Mark Derry, Ryan Garrett and Wyatt Inman finishing with a score of 52.
