The Auxiliary of Brooks Memorial Hospital is celebrating the 21st anniversary of the "Tree of Lights" communitywide remembrance project. Brochures have been mailed inviting the public to participate in this fundraiser. Contributors can make a donation in memory of or in tribute to loved ones and friends or give a light to recognize: anniversary, birthday, Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, Confirmation, employees, friendship, get well, gift, graduation, holiday, teachers, wedding. The special "Tree of Lights" Tree Lighting Ceremony, to which the public is invited, will be held Friday at 7 p.m. in the main lobby of Brooks Memorial Hospital. Refreshments will follow.
The names of all honorees will appear on a Scroll of Honor to be displayed in the hospital's main lobby.
For a donation of $10 per individual name a gold or white light will be placed on the living evergreen "Tree of Lights" on the hospital roof. A $50 or more donation per individual name will purchase a red light for the "Circle of Lights" at the top of the tree. This beautiful tree will remain illuminated through the holiday season. Gold lights represent a tribute to living family members and friends, white lights honor the memory of loved ones and the red lights circling the top of the live tree represent either gifts in honor of, or in memory of family members or friends.
