Letter: Almost at fundraising goal

We’d like to thank everyone for supporting as we try to get to our goal of $500,000 for the hospital foundation.

We would like to say thank you to the South Okanagan Indo-Canadian community for organizing the recent fundraising dinner and dance night for Penticton’s new hospital tower and raising $13,000 to support this great cause for the local community.

We’d like to thank all the attendees, volunteers and sponsors for supporting us. It was only possible due to support from all of you. Our goal of $500,000 is not too far away. We have already reached $360,000.

We would also like to say thank you to all the sponsors for this fundraising dinner.
