VJH Foundation Charity Classic

On behalf of the VJH Foundation and the Board of Directors, thank you to all of the Predator Ridge Resort members for your support of the 10th Anniversary VJHF Charity Classic.

Although the weather didn’t cooperate as much as we would have all liked all of the players had a great time, judging by the smiles and camaraderie displayed in the ballroom after the event.

This year’s event saw us more than exceed our fundraising goals, netting over $300,000 for the second year in a row for priority equipment at Vernon Jubilee Hospital. This means that over the past ten years we’ve raised an amazing $2,010,000. What a generous community we have!

Events like this wouldn’t happen without the commitment of fantastic supporters like the members at Predator Ridge. We are incredibly grateful for your support. Please accept our heartfelt thanks for your generosity.

Sincerely,

The VJH Foundation

From the Inspired Living Organizing Committee

Predator Ridge is once again thrilled to support our artistically talented homeowners and residents by hosting the second annual Inspired Living Art Show and Sale in late spring of 2020 (date will be announced in early December).

This is a juried show and artist application is open to all residents and homeowners in Predator Ridge. The talent at Predator Ridge is evident and the enthusiastic response by the community was overwhelming! Last year, we had over 500 people attend the show and many came away with unique, one of a kind pieces of art to display in their homes.

This show is run by Predator Ridge homeowner volunteers . For information about the show and the application and jury process, timelines, logistics, and volunteer opportunities please contact inspiredlivingart@gmail.com.

Creatively yours,
Inspired Living Organizing Committee
