Auxiliary supports health care

Patient care in the North Okanagan has received a boost. The Vernon Jubilee Hospital Auxiliary’s recent garage sale raised $3,500.

“All of money raised goes to the hospital for needed equipment and patient care,” said May Correale, with the auxiliary.

“We have a wonderful hospital and the auxiliary feel privileged to help it in any way that we can. We do appreciate the people of Vernon who so generously support the auxiliary in all of our fundraising efforts.”

The event’s sponsors included the People Place, Elephant Storage, Magnet Signs for their support, Swan Lake Nurseryland, DS Gardens, Flower Spot, Zelaney Farms, Coldstream Willows, Bloom Tyme Nursery, Nicholas Alexander, Home Depot, Rona and Buy Low.

“There were also anonymous donations left for us at People Place. Last but not least, a thank you to all of the people who came out and bought items, and all of the auxiliary members and family and friends and the youth health care volunteers for all of their work. It was a huge success and worth the effort,” said Correale.
