Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital is the big winner of the first Teeing Up Fore Health Care golf classic.

Supporters of the  June 16 event bettered a hole-in-one by raising more than $22,000.00 net for the Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital Foundation

Realtors at RE/MAX Quinte Ltd. in Prince Edward County teed up their support to improve the care patients receive at Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital by directing the proceeds from the tournament toward the Hospital Foundation’s current $350,000 LIFE SAVER Campaign for medical equipment – including a replacement echocardiogram (ECG) machine, used for heart monitoring at PECMH at a cost of $23,000.
