Rotary club completes $150,000 commitment to PAH

The Rotary Club of Semiahmoo has completed its $150,000 commitment to fund one of the new birthing rooms on the maternity floor of Peace Arch Hospital.

A $27,360 cheque presented to Peace Arch Hospital Foundation executive director Jackie Smith last week represents funds raised at the club's 2011 golf tournament.

Proceeds from the annual event, held each spring, have gone to such hospital needs as the CAT scan, pediatric surgical microscopes, patient lifts, and cardio and surgical equipment.

The more than $800,000 raised for the hospital since the club began in 1989 – the largest such contribution from a service club and one of the top donorships in any category has included money for a passenger bus for residential patients, the dental facility at Weatherby Pavilion, and a $150,000 community room for patient rehabilitation on the fifth floor.

The 23rd annual Semiahmoo Rotary charity golf tournament will be held June 23, at a new venue for the organization, Hazelmere Golf and Tennis Club.
