Islanders will have the opportunity to support the QEH Foundation’s “Tulips for the QEH” sale on Feb. 28.

Businesses and individuals are encouraged to pre-order their tulip bouquets before Feb. 21 by calling the QEH Foundation office at 902-894-2425 or by emailing sgwhiteway@ihis.org.  

Volunteers with the QEH Foundation will offer free delivery to businesses in the greater Charlottetown Area, with a minimum purchase of five bouquets.

QEH Foundation volunteers will also be selling tulip bouquets in the QEH lobby on Feb. 28 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., or as supplies last. 

A bouquet of 10 tulips will cost $10, and all proceeds will help support the purchase of a new CT scanner for the diagnostic imaging department at the QEH, which costs $1.5 million.

CT scan test results are relied on today more than ever, and are used in most aspects of medicine, especially as it relates to stroke care, cancer and major trauma.
