Community supports Auxiliary

The Vernon Jubilee Hospital Auxiliary is busy all year with fundraisers that help to ensure patient care and comfort

Every year, members of the Vernon Jubilee Hospital Auxiliary give countless hours to ensure patient care and comfort.

But they can’t do it without reaching out to  the community through a variety of annual fundraisers.

The auxiliary’s recent raffle was a big success.

The raffle brought in $10,000 and will be used to purchase items on the hospital wish list.

“The auxiliary wishes to thank the merchants who donated these prizes and everyone who purchased tickets,” said Nell McInnes, with the auxiliary. “We especially want to thank Marie Dedish for convening this event. She did an awesome job of organizing the sites to sell tickets and the ticket sellers, as well as spending many hours moving the prizes around and selling tickets herself.”

Gwen Langley was the winner of the Xbox donated by Telus; Susan Hickman won the coin collection donated in memory of the Dedish family; Sarah Scott won the child’s replica antique signature ride-on truck donated by A&W; Pam Jordon won the boy’s bicycle purchased with donated HBC points; Sau Kiun-Chung won the girls’ bicycle donated by Vernon and Pleasant Valley Funeral Homes.

“Thank you to our community for your continued support,” said McInnes.
