Victoria Hospitals Foundation’s 24th annual Visions gala raised more than $468,000 last weekend for health care on Vancouver Island.

The black-tie event raised funds through ticket sales, a live and silent auction, a raffle, cash donations, and community sponsorships.

Vsions is a major component of the foundation’s fall fundraising campaign, which this year aims to raise $725,000 to fund the purchase of three cardiac ultra-sound machines that provide 3D high-definition, full-colour images of the heart.
