Silver Star Mountain Resort is giving a lift to the Vernon Jubilee Hospital Foundation’s Light A Bulb campaign.

A season opener lift ticket sale runs until Nov. 21.

Lift ticket vouchers are being sold for a special price of $20 per person, with 100 per cent of sales being donated to the campaign.

“We are pleased to once again support this important community initiative,” said Anne Haight, Silver Star sales and marketing director.

This year’s Light a Bulb will help fund the $2.5 million Building a Tower of Care campaign to equip the sixth and seventh floors of the Polson Tower with 60 patient rooms and medical equipment.

“We are excited to continue our partnership with Silver Star,” said Sue Beaudry, VJH Foundation director of development.

Passes are valid from Nov. 27 to 30 and can be purchased in unlimited quantities at the Vernon Jubilee Hospital Foundation office until Nov. 21.

On Saturday, lift vouchers will also be available at Cooper’s Foods, Safeway (Vernon Square) and Save-On Foods from 10 a.m. to 3p.m.
