Teeing Up Fore Health Care Golf Classic
June 12 @ 11:30 am - 7:30 pm
Realtors at RE/MAX Quinte Ltd. in Prince Edward County are again teeing up to improve the care patients receive at Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital.
On Tuesday, June 12, 2018 RE/MAX Quinte Ltd. and the Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital Foundation will join forces to host the fourth annual Teeing Up Fore Health Care golf classic at the Picton Golf and Country Club in support of priority medical equipment purchases at our County hospital.
The Teeing Up Fore Health Care golf committee is thrilled to announce that Wilkinson & Company LLP, Chartered Accountants and Tax Specialists will again champion the golf classic at the title level. The firm generously sponsored $5,000 toward supporting the tournament and over the four years since the tournament’s inception, have given $20,000.
Net proceeds will be directed to the PECMH Foundation to assist with the purchase of two Trilogy 202 Ventilators for our Emergency Department. These portable ventilators provide life support for transporting critically ill patients from one hospital to another. The ventilator breathes for these patients who are unable to breathe for themselves. This machine is also able to provide oxygen under pressure with a mask similar to a machine used for treating sleep apnea Acquiring this new equipment will cost $31,902 for two ventilators. We need your help to achieve this goal!
Registration on June 12 will begin at 11:00 a.m. Golfers will then hit the links for the 1:00 p.m. shotgun start to enjoy 18 holes on the well-manicured, picturesque course in Picton. Entry into the tournament costs $150 per golfer. The tournament sold out in 2017 and the tournament is well over 75 per cent sold out for 2018.
“RE/MAX Quinte is excited to spearhead this golf tournament to raise funds for heart monitoring equipment at our hospital. Quality health care is an asset to attracting homebuyers to our area and anything we can contribute towards that end is a step in the right direction. Join us on June 12 and let’s show how strong our community is,” said Sean McKinney, broker of record with RE/MAX Quinte Ltd.
Registration is now open! Please call Briar at 613-476-1008 ext. 4425 to participate. The classic is open to 100 golfers on a first come, first served basis so register early to avoid disappointment. We are also looking for volunteers in various capacities to help throughout the day.
