St. Mary’s Lights of Love Honors Loved Ones, Adds Honor for Service Members
8th Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony to be Held December 7 at 4:00 p.m.
During this holiday season St. Mary’s Hospital is inviting community members to remember and honor their loved ones, friends and neighbors through the St. Mary’s Lights of Love Program.
The annual program allows people to purchase an LED light in honor of a special person in their life or the memory of a loved one. New this year, the hospital is adding a third color of lights to the celebration. Blue lights will now add to the warm glow by honoring or remembering those who serve our country. As in years past, red lights serve as a living tribute and white lights honor the memory of a loved one. During a special lighting ceremony on December 7 at 4:00 p.m., community members are able to see the warm loving glow they helped create.
This year approximately 6,900 elegant lights of red, white and blue will brighten the Gardens of St. Mary’s, sending a message of love and caring to those looking out their hospital windows or just passing by. People can purchase a single light, a string of lights or an entire tree through December 24, 2014, by contacting the St. Mary’s Volunteer office or by mailing in this order form.
Proceeds from the Lights of Love program benefit St. Mary’s patients, families and the community. The funds raised help support items that are essential for tiny newborns such as Bilirubin Lights and the Hearing Screening device, as well as Nursing Scholarships for employees and volunteers.
We invite you to help us celebrate the holiday season and remember those who hold a special place in our lives.
