The eighth annual Vernon Jubilee Hospital Foundation Charity Classic was a success.

The event at Predator Ridge Resort raised a record-breaking amount of more than $280,000.

“I would like to thank all of our sponsors, volunteers, foundation staff, committee members and Predator Ridge for their support and dedication to making this an amazing event,” said Mark Kellock, organizing committee chairperson.

The event sponsored by the Paul Docksteader Foundation raised funds for the purchase equipment for the cardio-pulmonary and emergency departments at Vernon Jubilee Hospital.

Major sponsors include Black & McDonald, Kal Tire, Predator Ridge, RBC Dominion Securities, Silver Star Mountain Resort and Wayside.

Sue Beaudry, VJH Foundation director of development, was the recipient of the inaugural Cliff Oughtred Leadership Award presented by Paul Docksteader, along with a $1,000 donation to the VJH Foundation. The award was created in memory of Oughtred who chaired the Charity Classic for the past four years. He died earlier this year.
