Hitting the slopes will provide a lasting legacy for health care in the North Okanagan.

Silver Star Mountain Resort is selling opening weekend lift tickets for $20 each, with proceeds  going towards the $2.5 million Building a Tower of Care Campaign, Phase II at Vernon Jubilee Hospital.

“We are very excited about supporting this important community initiative,” said Michael Sherwood, Silver Star Mountain resort general manager.

“We wanted to do something that would have a significant impact on all residents of the North Okanagan, and provide a long-lasting benefit to our community.”

The Vernon Jubilee Hospital Foundation is raising $2.5 million over the next three years to equip the sixth and seventh floors of Polson Tower with 60 patient rooms and medical equipment.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for families, groups and community members to come together in support of enhanced patient care, while taking part in this generous incentive from Silver Star,” said Sue Beaudry, VJHF director of development.
