Campaign starts to shine

With the 27th annual Light a Bulb underway, the Vernon Jubilee Hospital Foundation has raised $34,774 to date

With the 27th annual Light a Bulb underway, the Vernon Jubilee Hospital Foundation has raised $34,774 over the past two weeks.

The campaign has a goal of $250,000, with donations going towards equipment for the sixth and seventh floors of the Polson Tower.

“The nearly $35,000 we have received so far has been made up of donations from $10 to $1,500,” said Sue Beaudry, director of development. “It really shows how powerful a community can be when we all work together.”

Silver Star Mountain Resort is continuing to raise funds for the campaign through its opening weekend lift ticket sale.

For a donation of $20, you receive a lift ticket pass for opening weekend Nov. 27 to 30.  Lift passes are being sold at the VJH office until Thursday.

“Sales for this initiative are lower than we expected, so we are hoping more people will take part by getting their lift passes over the next week,” said Beaudry.

To make a donation to Light A Bulb, go to www.vjhfoundation.org or mail your cheque to the VJH Foundation, 2101 32nd St., Vernon B.C., V1T 5L2.
