'Day of Giving' raises over $350,000

The KGH Foundation's second annual "Day of Giving" - supported by AM 1150 and Bell Media - raised $177-thousand dollars for JoeAnna's House on Thursday.

The sum was matched by the Kelowna Foundation for Hope and Social Innovation, bringing the grand total to $354-thousand dollars.

JoeAnna's House will be a home away from home for families of patients who've travelled to Kelowna General Hospital for advanced medical care. 

Construction on the $8-million dollar facility is scheduled to begin this fall.
