Celebration of Lights

The Celebration of Lights provides the community with an opportunity to honor or memorialize someone special while helping the volunteers raise money for hospital projects. When someone makes a tax-deductible donation of $10 or more, a light will be placed on the Celebration of Lights tree located near the hospital’s main entrance. Those making a single donation of $50 or more will be recognized in a special way with a Star Giver light, which will be placed at the top of the tree. The tree lighting ceremony is always held in front of the tree on December 1 at 7:00 p.m. and includes music and refreshments. If you are interested in honoring or memorializing a loved one, please call 540-636-0299.
