Tree of Lights Benefits Cancer Program

Nov 16, 2011 06:11PM ● Published by Anonymous


On Tuesday, November 22, the Memorial Hospital Auxiliary will launch its 28th Annual Tree of Lights fundraising campaign. By purchasing a light for the Memorial Hospital holiday tree, donors have an opportunity to honor their friends and family members while raising money that benefits the Shore Regional Cancer Program.

The community is invited to the Tree of Lights tree lighting ceremony on Tuesday, November 22 at 4:30 p.m. at the front lobby entrance to Memorial Hospital, 219 S. Washington Street in Easton. Festivities will include refreshments and entertainment. In keeping with tradition, the lighting of the tree in the front circle of the hospital will mark the beginning of Easton’s holiday season. The tree will stay illuminated until the first of the New Year.

The Memorial Hospital Auxiliary has set a goal to raise funds that will be used to purchase equipment for the Cancer Center. Keeping pace with the ever-changing technology used to provide world class cancer care makes it possible for cancer patients to continue to receive the treatments they need close to home.

The community can support the Tree of Lights fundraiser by making a donation to purchase a light for the Memorial Hospital holiday tree. A one-season donation of $5 buys a red or gold light. The red light honors family members and friends, living or deceased. The gold light honors people serving in the military. A $100 contribution purchases a white Life Light, which will be lit each year.

Purchasing an annual light or a Life Light is also a unique way to commemorate special occasions, to offer thanksgiving and to show appreciation. The name of each person recognized through the purchase of any light will be displayed on scrolls hung in the main lobby at Memorial Hospital throughout the holiday season.

For more information about the Memorial Hospital Auxiliary Tree of Lights fundraiser, call the Memorial Hospital Auxiliary at 410-822-1000, ext. 5839.
