David E. Kampe Tower
The Hospital Auxiliary has recently completed their pledge for the purchase of equipment for the David E. Kampe Tower. We would like to thank the businesses and residents of Penticton for supporting of our fundraising projects allowing us to complete our five year pledge in three years. The mammography room will be named for us.
Such events like Take An Old Bag to Tea, West Jet Raffle, our Gift Wrapping station in the mall during Christmas Holidays and the Gingerbread House contest, were a few that were carried out with great success. The conveners of these events all express their gratitude to the people who volunteered to make these events a great success.
