JCI Vernon Hospital Gala Raises $23,700
The 5th annual JCI Hospital Gala held April 12th at the Best Western Vernon Lodge raised $23,700 for the Building a Tower of Care Campaign, Phase II. The theme, ‘Old Hollywood Glamour’ proved to be popular with hundreds of Hollywood look-a-likes walking the red carpet to the sold out event.
Featuring live and silent auctions, a casino, red carpet welcome, entertainment from The Marksmen and Alex MacArthur, and an old Hollywood-themed keepsake photography booth, the gala attracted more than 350 guests.
“We are very thankful for the amazing community support we have received for the gala,” says Co-chair Nicola Dent. “Without our many sponsors, committee members and volunteers this night just could not have happened.”
Co-chair Sandra Simao acknowledged the longstanding partnership between JCI and VJHF,
“Thank you to Vernon Jubilee Hospital Foundation for all the support and confidence placed in us as a chapter over the years. Our relationship is one that we sincerely cherish in this community.”
