From the Vernon Jubilee Hospital Foundation

Vernon Jubilee Hospital Foundation is grateful for a decade of generosity from the Predator Ridge Members. We are proud to say that the VJHF Charity Classic is widely regarded as the premier golf tournament in the Okanagan Valley. We have enjoyed tremendous success and funded critically needed equipment and programs at Vernon Jubilee Hospital and could not have accomplished so much without you. Thank you.

Over the past 10 years, the VJHF Charity Classic has raised a staggering $1.75 million, including a record breaking $306,317 in 2018. This year, with your support, we aim to break $2 million.

All funds have been used to fund critically needed equipment and improve services at Vernon Jubilee Hospital. In 2018, proceeds supported the campaign OPERATION: Surgical Care for Life, increasing surgical capacity and reducing wait times at Vernon Jubilee Hospital, helping our loved ones getting on the road to recovery faster.

FROM THE VERNON FOLK-ROOTS MUSIC SOCIETY

The Small Glories return to Vernon Folk Roots Music Society!

Folk powerhouse pair The Small Glories are hometown girl Cara Luft & JD Edwards, a dynamic duo planted on the Canadian Prairies. A self-professed “study in contrasts,” Luft's folkie yin proves a perfect match for Edwards’ rocker yang.

Thrown together purely by accident for an anniversary show at Winnipeg’s venerable West End Cultural Centre, The Small Glories is a partnership that could almost make you believe in fate. Straight out of the gate these two veteran singer/songwriters built a buzz around their tight harmonies, authenticity, visceral live performances and equally well-matched guitar prowess that doesn’t come around often.

Luft packs a mean banjo as well. The Winnipeg Free Press asks, "can two singer-songwriters be better than one? Yes, emphatically, yes, if the two in question are Cara Luft and JD Edwards... It’s our loss they didn’t [join forces] sooner... It’s magic.”

Their 2016 debut album “Wondrous Traveler” is steeped in classic song structure, delivering instantly appealing melodic Americana with first-rate playing. The album found its way onto many critic’s Top 10 lists across North America and Europe, and The Small Glories are finding themselves on stages from Vancouver to London and beyond. Together, Luft and Edwards are a musical tour de force, a case of 1 + 1 = 3.

DATE: Thursday, February 28, 2019
WHERE: The Vernon Lodge  (3914 32nd Street, Vernon)
TIME: Doors open at 6:30pm, concert at 7:30pm

Food and beverages will be available at the show, so please arrive early and hungry!
