Getting closer to Light A Bulb Campaign goal

With 9 days left to go until Christmas, the 31st annual Light A Bulb Campaign has picked up a lot of momentum and the Vernon Jubilee Hospital Foundation expects to reach our $275,000 goal.

“We are getting closer and are so thrilled with the generosity of our community,” says Lisa Westermark, Executive Director, Vernon Jubilee Hospital Foundation. “Seeing people come together and hearing why they are donating to Light A Bulb is what inspires us to do our work.”

Organizations who have donated to Light A Bulb include Country Squire Barbers & Stylists and the Vernon Japanese Women’s Auxiliary.

The campaign will provide VJH surgeons with the equipment needed to perform more surgeries, ultimately reducing wait times and improving patient outcomes so our loved ones can get on the road to recovery much sooner.

1 in 10 people living in the North Okanagan have received surgery at Vernon Jubilee Hospital in the past year. That means you, or someone you know, have been touched by the services of the hospital. We have had people come forward to give anything they can because they recognize the importance of healthcare in our community and want to make a difference. No gift is too small and we are grateful for all contributions.

We are almost there! Help the Vernon Jubilee Hospital Foundation meet our goal with your donations. Your gift stays local and gets put to work right here in the North Okanagan.

Each $35 tax deductible gift will light one bulb on the tree of lights; $500 will light an entire string. Every gift, great or small, brings us closer to raising $275,000 for critical equipment at VJH.
