A popular Christmas tradition is gaining momentum.
The Light A Bulb campaign at Vernon Jubilee Hospital has raised $115,521 to date.
“Every donation great or small will help bring us closer to our $200,000 goal,” said Michael Concannon, campaign chairperson.
The funds will support the purchase of high definition cameras used to perform endoscopic surgeries and a video colposcopy system supporting women’s health.
Support is coming from a variety of sources throughout the North Okanagan.
The Army, Navy and Air Force unit and the ANAF Auxiliary recently presented $2,000 to Light A Bulb and expansion of the McMurtry-Baerg Cancer Centre.
“The VJH Foundation is grateful for the generosity of the members of the unit and its auxiliary,” said Connanon.
“The foundation is also pleased to have received generous donations from Nature’s Fare Market and the Winfield Lions Club.”
This year’s tax deductible donations will light the bulbs on the Christmas tree located on the roof of VJH.
