The Partners of St. Nicholas Hospital Invite the Community to Participate in Love Lights
Sheboygan, Wis. The Partners of St. Nicholas Hospital invite people to participate in their 20th annual Christmas fundraiser, Love Lights.
People wishing to contribute to Love Lights may designate individuals they wish to honor or memorialize. They may also list their own names and those of their family. For each donation, a light symbolically shines on the Hospital lobby Christmas trees. The names of all remembered individuals are also displayed in the lobby throughout the Holiday season.
Lights are $5 for an individual, $25 for a family (up to six people), and $50+ for corporate sponsors. Acknowledgement gift cards are also available in the Hospital Gift Shop.
Proceeds from Love Lights benefit the Hospital's Lifeline® program. Lifeline is a personal emergency response system that links clients to 24-hour emergency assistance at the push of a button. This program gives family members a sense of reassurance in knowing that their loved ones are not alone.
In 1989, the Partners of St. Nicholas Hospital donated $15,000 to begin the Lifeline program for the Hospital and the Sheboygan area. Over the years, the program continues to grow, thanks to the many people who generously donate to Love Lights. Serving currently as the Love Lights' Chair is Partner member, Carole Claussen.
"The Partners' commitment to Love Lights furthers it mission to provide service to St. Nicholas Hospital, its patients, and the community," said Cynthia Bertsch, Director, Fund Development and Advocacy.
To participate, donations may be made through December 22, 2009, in the Gift Shop or [click here] for a form. Complete the form and mail along with a check to Partners of St. Nicholas Hospital, 3100 Superior Ave., Sheboygan, WI 53081. Donations to the Love Lights Program are tax deductible.
