Cancer centre fundraiser a wrap after Charity Classic

Gala and golf tournament raise more than $126,000 for Vernon Jubilee Hospital

Community generosity means a major project is going ahead at Vernon Jubilee Hospital.

The Charity Classic raised more than $126,000 during a gala Saturday and a golf tournament Sunday at Predator Ridge.

As a result, the expansion of the McMurtry-Baerg Cancer Centre at VJH can proceed.

“Going into the event, there was a need to raise $80,000 to provide the necessary $500,000

to expand and renovate the centre,” said Sue Beaudry, with the VJH Foundation.
