$50,000 Donation from BMO to SOS Medical Foundation

A 50-thousand dollar donation is coming to the South Okanagan Similkameen medical foundation and their Patient Care Tower Campaign, thanks to the BMO Financial Group.

John Moorehouse is with the Medical Foundation; He says the local Penticton branch was very much involved in this donation.

"It was actually a group of about six or seven people, most of them from the Penticton branch of The Bank of Montreal, who came up for the presentation," says Moorehouse. "We greatly appreciate the local flavor involved in this." 

Moorehouse says the 20-million dollar campaign is at around 13-million dollars right now.

The tower is expected to be ready for patients by 2019.
