Charity Classic Raising Funds for Cardiac Care at VJH

2017 celebrates the 8th Annual VJH Foundation Charity Classic, supporting health care in the North Okanagan.

To date this event has raised $1.178 million net, which purchased essential medical equipment for Vernon Jubilee Hospital. This year’s event will raise money to fight heart disease at the hospital.

Heart disease and stroke are some of the number one killers of men and women in Canada. Early diagnosis or rapid treatment can make a difference in saving lives. Providing Vernon Jubilee Hospital staff with the right tools is the first step in saving lives. Whether it is having an ECG in the Emergency Unit or undergoing a stress test on a treadmill in the Cardio/Respiratory Department, all help patients achieve better outcomes.

Net proceeds of this year’s event will directly support this urgent need. The golf tournament will be held on Sunday, September 10, 2017 at Predator Ridge Golf Course. Gourmet meals, $10,000 prize table and a fabulous golf course are all reasons to attend this event. VJH Foundation is grateful for the generous support received from its sponsors, including Title Sponsor, Paul Docksteader Foundation.
