Donations Needed for Hospital Foundation Fundraiser

DPA seeking silent auction/prize donations for 2nd Annual EllisDon Corporation/South Okanagan Similkameen
Medical Foundation (SOS Medical Foundation) Golf Tournament

The Downtown Penticton Association is collaborating on the 2nd Annual EllisDon Corporation/South Okanagan Similkameen Medical Foundation (SOS Medical Foundation) Golf Tournament. As a part of our downtown community, we are reaching out to organizations and businesses for a donation of goods, materials and/or services to be used as silent auction and tournament prizes.

As you know, the Penticton Regional Hospital is building a new Patient Care Tower which will provide specialized acute care for patients living in the South Okanagan area. The new medical facility will improve the delivery of safe, timely and effective care while helping to resolve over-capacity issues and enhance patients’ overall experience.

While construction of the new tower is underway, the SOS Medical Foundation is ambitiously working to raise $20 million for all the new medical equipment and ancillary resources that Penticton’s new hospital facility will require. This golf tournament is one of their key fundraising initiatives (last year it raised $67,000), and your support matters.

If you are able to make a donation of goods, materials and/or services, please call the DPA office at 250-493-8540 or email info@downtownpenticton.org to provide us with details. Following that, we will need to receive your donation at the DPA office by 3:00 PM on Wednesday, August 15, 2018.

The EllisDon Golf Tournament is set for August 24, 2018 at the Penticton Golf and Country Club.

For donors who may be interested: as a registered charity, the SOS Medical Foundation is able to provide your business with a tax receipt when:

“An invoice is included with your gift basket/donation clearly stating it is a donation to the SOS Medical Foundation, the value of donated items is provided, and the value is $25 or greater.”

If you have any questions about the silent auction or would like to learn more about other sponsorship opportunities, please contact either of us at your earliest convenience.
