Gala supports clinics

Nursing students at UBC Okanagan will host their 10th annual Global Gala, a fundraiser to support medical clinics in Ghana and Zambia.

The gala is run in partnership with the Okanagan Zambia Health Initiative.

The formal evening includes a three-course dinner, entertainment and silent auction. Money raised go directly to fund health initiatives which support outreach clinics, and the purchase of medical equipment.

Each year, a group of nursing students and faculty travel to clinics in Zambia and Ghana to deliver funds raised and see how that money is benefitting people in those countries.

The gala is set for Friday, Nov. 23 at the Delta Grand Resort.

There is currently a flash sale on tickets to the event, starting at $100 which and can be purchased through Eventbrite.
