On Thursday 21st November 2019, the Rotary Club of East Coast Bays, in association with our principal sponsor, North Shore Taxis, will be holding the 19th annual "DRIVE 4 LIFE" charity golf (ambrose) tournament at Waitemata Golf Club in Devonport, in support of the Well Foundation.
This is an invitation for you, your staff, clients and friends to participate and help raise funds for one the Well Foundation’s highest current priorities – Establish life-saving cancer care for our local community at North Shore Hospital for the first time.
This year we are again selecting the Waitemata District Health Board’s Well Foundation as the ultimate beneficiary.
Dermatome Surgical Handpiece
The dermatome is an electrical surgical instrument used on hundreds of cancer and burns patients each year for skin grafts. Due to rapid population increases and a resulting sharp rise in surgical demand at North Shore Hospital, an additional dermatome is required. The dermatome is able to cut micro-thin layers of skin from a healthy part of the patient for skin grafts needed elsewhere on the body. One of its main uses is for reconstituting skin areas affected by cancer lesions, severe burns and accidents which expose soft tissue.
The Well Foundation approached East Coast Bays Rotary Club to see if we could assist by providing funds for this important piece of equipment. The club made the decision that this project would be a worthy service we could assist with. This is a fundraiser the whole of our club membership gets involved in by assisting in the running of the Golf Tournament.
 The Rotary Club of East Coast Bays Charitable Trust with the support of the Well Foundation and other businesses will be raising funds for this and other community projects.
Major Sponsor:  Ryman Healthcare
