Lexington Medical Center Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony and Concert Event Raises Money for Patients in Need
Posted by: Jennifer Wilson, Public Relations Manager | December 06, 2010
West Columbia, S.C. – Lexington Medical Center will host its annual “Share Your Love with a Light” Christmas tree lighting on Tuesday, December 7, 2010 in the atrium of the hospital’s North Tower at 4:00 p.m.
The annual tree lighting ceremony is part of the Lexington Medical Center Volunteer Auxiliary’s “Share Your Love with a Light” fundraiser. Lights can be purchased in honor or memory of a special person for $5.00. Proceeds from the lights benefit patients in need and help them pay for prescriptions and other items for medical care when no other source of funds is available to them. Last year, the program raised more than $4,000.
Each person or family for whom a light is purchased will receive a card notifying them of the honor, and each name will be on a scroll to be displayed in the first floor lobby of the hospital through the holiday season.
During the Christmas tree lighting, the Palmetto Mastersingers and children from Lexington Medical Center’s Child Development Center will sing holiday favorites.
Reporters and photographers are welcome. If you plan to attend, please contact Jennifer Wilson, Lexington Medical Center Public Relations Manager at (803) 939-4512.
