Light a Bulb Reaches $115,038
With the 27th annual Light a Bulb campaign underway, Vernon Jubilee Hospital Foundation has reached 46% of its goal, raising $115,038.00 to date.
“We are happy to be off to a strong start due to several large donations,” said Richard Finn, Campaign Co-Chair. “There is still a long way to go to reach our goal of $250,000, so every donation is important no matter how large or small.”
This year’s Light a Bulb is supporting the Building a Tower of Care Campaign, Phase II, to furnish and equip the 6th and 7th floors of Polson Tower.
Campaign donations include $50,000 from Armstrong/Spallumcheen Healthcare Auxiliary, $1,500 from Royal Purple Lodge #123, $1,000 from Elks Lodge #45, Alpha Epsilon Master Beta Sigma Phi, Coldstream Women’s Institute, Country Squire Barbers and J-Ball Electronics.
