Honor loved ones through ‘Lights of Love’

“Lights for Love,” the annual holiday campaign sponsored by the OSF Saint Anthony Medical Center Auxiliary, is under way.

“Lights for Love” is a thoughtful way to honor someone special and help support the work of the OSF Saint Anthony Auxiliary at the same time. Ornaments may be purchased in honor or in memory of a loved one or as a special way to express gratitude to a teacher, co-worker, physician or business.

Under this program, participants honor or remember a loved one by purchasing a wreath ornament for $10 each or a limited edition tabletop or tree topper for $50. Each person or organization honored, or whoever is designated on the notification card, will receive a permanent ornament.

A replica of the ornament with the name of the participant’s loved one will be placed on the “Lights for Love” Christmas tree in the OSF Saint Anthony Ambulatory Care Center throughout December.

Ornaments and tree toppers are available by calling the Foundation Council at 815-395-5333.

The lighting of the “Lights for Love” tree will be held at 11 a.m., Tuesday, Dec. 6, in the Ambulatory Care Center. Refreshments will be available following the ceremony.

Reservations for the dedication and blessing are required by Tuesday, Nov. 30, by calling 815-395-5333.

Proceeds from the “Lights for Love” campaign help support the projects of the Auxiliary.
