As a friendly reminder please ensure you stay off of the greens and tee boxes on the golf courses. This includes tobogganing, nordic skiing and/or snowshoeing. This is extremely important so the delicate grasses on these areas are not damaged. If you happen to see anyone on any green or tee box, we would appreciate your assistance in informing everyone about the importance of staying off of these sensitive areas. + Click here to view our winter trail map and location of our dedicated tobogganing zone.

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.

FROM THE VERNON FOLK-ROOTS MUSIC SOCIETY

Kat Danser & The Tall Tales come to Vernon this March!

Kat Danser’s music is a steel belted radial easily flexing between a dusty gravel road and a fresh coat of asphalt. True to her Polish- Gypsy heritage, Danser is in perpetual motion and her swampy roots and blues style is a fine-tuned reflection of life lessons from the road. Edmonton’s Kat Danser doesn’t just play the blues - she studies it, lives it, breathes it and elevates it from sweaty, smoky beer joints to elegant centre stage in the finest of concert halls. Her sweet vocals, lyrical genius, and instrumental prowess beautifully combine with her sharp wit and commanding stage presence to deliver unfailingly memorable live performances. 

Her fifth album, Goin’ Gone, is a collaboration between Danser and Juno-award winning producer Steve Dawson and will be released on Black Hen Music and distributed by True North Records. This recording is a highly energetic album that sits the listener right beside her on the vinyl seat of a1949 Ford Lead Sled as she rolls and rumbles through the Deep South, USA. 

Her accolades have been many. Danser is a three-time nominee for a Western Canadian Music Award and a national Maple Blues Award - Best New Artist of the Year, winner of the Ambassador of the Blues Award (Blues Underground Network) and the International Blues Competition Best Independent Blues Album, as well as being voted to have made one of the Top 5 Roots & Blues Albums of 2014 (CBC Radio & Blues Underground Network).

DATE: Friday, March 22, 2019
WHERE: The Vernon Lodge  (3914 32nd Street, Vernon)
TIME: Doors open at 6:30pm, concert at 7:30pm
