Nicola Valley Healthcare Auxiliary reaching ER fundraiser goal.
President Jackie Hall confirms the auxiliary has raised the $150,000 it pledged to help equip the newly remodeled emergency room at the Nicola Valley Hospital and Health Centre.
"We made the pledge last year but have really been fundraising for more than two. This money comes from the sales at or thrift shop. The volunteers that run that store deserve a lot of credit, and we couldn't be happier to be making this donation."
Hall says the auxiliary has roughly 75 members.
The $150,000 pledge was made in partnership with the Nicola Valley Health Care Endowment Foundation, who are attempting to raise another $550,000.
The newly expanded ER at the Nicola Valley Hospital and Health Centre is expected to be operational next month.
