Vernon Jubilee Hospital Foundation reaches campaign goal

Campaign raises nearly $2.6 million in less than two years to help equip top two floors of VJH's Polson Tower

The Vernon Jubilee Hospital Foundation announced Wednesday it has completed its fundraising goal to equip the top two floors of the hospital a year ahead of schedule.

Launched in November 2013, the aim of the Building A Tower of Care Campaign Phase II was to reach $2.5 million by mid-2016.

On Wednesday, foundation president Elise Allan announced that nearly $2.6 million had been raised.

“Due to the generosity of the North Okanagan community and beyond, the campaign has been a great success and we have surpassed our goal in less than two years,” said Allan.

The campaign was bolstered by a $250,000 contribution from the Kiwanis Club of Vernon Four Seasons, and $25,000 from Vernon law firm Nixon-Wenger.
