Annual Pat Docherty

Golf Memorial Tournament

August 24, 2024

Pat Docherty Memorial Tournament

Since 2017, the Pat Docherty Memorial Tournament has successfully raised over $429,000 for various groups throughout Central Vancouver Island. Notably, $353,405.00 has been donated to the Nanaimo & District Hospital Foundation, significantly enhancing the critical care capacity of the Nanaimo Regional General Hospital (NRGH).

This event grew out of a deep friendship, beginning as a simple golf day among friends in 2014, raising funds for various charities over the years. After Pat’s passing in late 2016, the tournament was dedicated to his memory. Since 2020, the Nanaimo & District Hospital Foundation has been the primary beneficiary.

In June 2023, friends gathered in Pat’s memory and celebrated having a room named in his honour in the new ICU within the Critical Care Floors at NRGH, made possible by generous donations from the tournament.

This year, the group aims to raise $124,000 to support the new HAU and to name a wing of the floor in their friend’s honour. The dedication of participants and sponsors drives the mission of Pat’s friends. We look forward to hosting you on August 24, 2024, at Fairwinds Golf Club for the 9th Annual Pat Docherty Memorial Tournament. You can support this tournament by registering for the event below, sponsoring the event, providing items for the silent auction or volunteering; all contributions to this event are eligible for a tax receipt.
