November 17, 2011GAINESVILLE, Ga. – Northeast Georgia Medical Center (NGMC) will hold the annual Love Light Celebration at 7 p.m., Monday, December 5, in the Auxiliary Love Light Garden outside the North Patient Tower.
The Love Light Celebration is sponsored by The Medical Center Auxiliary and is a celebration of Love Light donations made throughout the year. Love Light donations support Hospice of NGMC, which provides in-home nursing care for patients with a life-limiting illness.
For a minimum donation of $10, a light will be placed on the tree. Donations of $100 or more are designated as “Star” gifts, and donations of $500 or more are “Angel” gifts. Love Light donations can be made year-round in honor or memory of someone, and that person or the family will receive a card notifying them of the gift.
“We are blessed to have the services of Hospice of NGMC available in our community, allowing terminally ill patients to remain in their homes with their families and loved ones,” says Jane Lake, who, along with her husband, Frank Lake, MD, serves as chairs of the 2011 Love Light celebration.
“The funds raised through Love Light donations have a major impact on the services provided to Hospice patients throughout northeast Georgia, and the needs that are met by Love Light donations would not happen without these gifts.”
To make a donation or for more information about Love Light, please call The Medical Center Auxiliary at 770-219-1830.
