Christmas is a wonderful time to recognize that someone special in your life. For some, it can also be an important time to express remembrance for a deceased loved one or pet.
The Hospital Auxiliary’s Trees of Love fundraising event serves as a heartwarming way to acknowledge someone cherished or loved. Donations go towards funding special projects that help our hospital patients.
Dedicate a Light
For a minimum donation of $5.00, you can dedicate a white, green or red Christmas light for a person or pet that you want to honor or memorialize.
White lights symbolize a deceased loved one or pet.
Green lights are symbolic of a relative or friend honored.
Red lights are symbolic of a child or pet.
Donor acknowledgements are sent to the specified honoree or family of the memorialized individual as indicated.

The Book Of Love
When you donate, the special person or pet that you recognize becomes a registered name in our “Book of Love”. The Book of Love is an historical account of all those recognized since the event originally started in 1988. The Book is on display in the Hospital’s main entrance throughout the holiday season.
Trees Of Love Ceremony
The Trees of Love ceremony takes place on Sunday, December 8, 2019. The Open House begins at 4:30 pm with music and light refreshments in the hospital lobby. It concludes at 5pm with the lighting of the four stately spruce trees on the hospital’s front lawn.
