Campaign goal on target

Light A Bulb campaign at Vernon Jubilee Hospital has raised $165,000 of its $200,000 goal

The Light A Bulb campaign at Vernon Jubilee Hospital is closing in on its goal.

The campaign has raised  $165,000 towards the $200,000 needed to purchase two post-anaesthetic recovery monitors and an ENT navigation system for the surgical unit.

“I am confident that residents will rally to support the hospital,” said Gloria Morgan, Light A Bulb co-chairperson.

On Dec. 14, the VJH Foundation received $1,500 from the Army, Navy and Airforce Veterans Association.

“I appeal to other North Okanagan service clubs to follow their example and help us reach our goal,” said Morgan.

To make a donation online, go to or mail a cheque to the VJH Foundation, 2101 32nd St., Vernon B.C. V1T 5L2.


“Please assist the VJH Foundation light the trees atop the hospital and let the spirit of generosity shine this holiday season,” said Morgan.
