OSF St. Anthony Auxiliary offers ‘Lights for Love’


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

“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 your gratitude to a teacher, co-worker, physician or business.

Under this program, participants honor or remember a loved one by purchasing a commemorative peace dove or a limited edition frosted acrylic angel tabletop or tree topper. Each person or organization honored, or whoever is designated on the notification card, will receive a permanent dove 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 Ambulatory Care Center throughout December.

Ornaments are available for $10 each in the Gift Shop or by calling 395-5333. Twelve angel “tree toppers” are also available for a $75 donation.

The lighting of the “Lights for Love” tree will be held at 11 a.m., Tuesday, Dec. 3, in the atrium of OSF Saint Anthony Medical Center. Ornaments may be purchased any time before or after the tree lighting ceremony. All are welcome to the lighting, dedication and blessing of the Christmas tree. The sounds of the season will fill the air, and refreshments will be available.

Proceeds from the “Lights for Love” campaign help support the projects of the Auxiliary. This year, the funds have been earmarked to benefit the OSF Saint Anthony Ambulatory Care Center. For more information, call 395-5333.
