Light A Bulb campaign surpasses goal

The Vernon Jubilee Hospital Foundation’s 28th annual Light A Bulb campaign has raised $213,162

Holiday spirit has allowed a North Okanagan fundraising campaign to go over the top.

The Vernon Jubilee Hospital Foundation’s 28th annual Light A Bulb campaign has raised $213,162, with the original target set at $200,000 for  two new orthopaedic surgical sets.

“Support for the hospital is always very strong,” said Marg Bailey, campaign chairperson.

“But this year’s Light A Bulb campaign resonated with so many people.  They understood the necessity for the campaign. With so many patients waiting for hip and knee surgery, the 2015 Light A Bulb campaign became imperative to support. I wish to thank each and every one who supported this need. ”

Recent donations came from the Coldstream Women’s Institute, the Glenemma Ladies Club of Falkland and Rad Energy Electric.

“Look up high atop Vernon Jubilee Hospital. Your generosity has fully lit up the tree this holiday season,” said Bailey.
