Lights of Love Tree Lightings Set for December 1

Saturday, November 12, 2011

Georgetown, SC— Georgetown Hospital System’s Auxiliary will hold the annual Lights of Love tree lightings at Georgetown Memorial Hospital in Georgetown and Waccamaw Community Hospital in Murrells Inlet on Thursday, December 1 at dusk. These trees will remain lit throughout the holiday season.

The Lights of Love campaign raises money to award scholarships to third-year college students pursuing careers in healthcare. In 2011, the Auxiliary awarded two $1,500 scholarships and three $5,000 scholarships.

For a minimum tax-deductible contribution of $5 or more, one can honor or remember a special person in their life with a light that will shine on these Lights of Love trees. Donations will also be accepted to honor military members who have served or are currently serving. Each contribution will be acknowledged by campaign volunteers with a special card notifying the recipient or family of your gift. The gift will also be recognized and displayed in a special “Lights of Love” Remembrance Book located in the Georgetown Memorial Hospital and Waccamaw Community Hospital lobbies from mid-December through the end of January. The 2011 Lights of Love Remembrance book will be accessible online.

Online donations can be made at Donation forms will also be available at the GMH and WCH information desks. For more information, contact the GHS Auxiliary at 843-527-7107.
