Light a Bulb Campaign at 75% of Goal
Thanks to generous donors in the North Okanagan community, the Vernon Jubilee Hospital Foundation’s Light a Bulb campaign has reached $153,720 in donations.
The annual campaign raises funds for most-urgent equipment needs at Vernon Jubilee Hospital. This year, in order to alleviate long wait times for hip and knee surgery, the Foundation is raising $200,000 to purchase orthopaedic surgical equipment.
“The additional sets will allow surgeons to increase the number of surgeries performed every day at VJH,” said Campaign Chair Marg Bailey. “This will help dramatically decrease wait times for residents of the North Okanagan.”
Generous organizations and businesses contributing to Light a Bulb include Grizzly Curb & Concrete Ltd. and Country Squire Barbers & Stylists.
