Festival of Lights Tree Lighting Ceremony Held at Grand View Hospital
|SELLERSVILLE, Pa., December 5, 2013 – Grand View Hospital held the 30th annual Festival of Lights last night with a dedication ceremony and tree lighting in honor of loved ones. The ceremony included a reading of the names of individuals and organizations being honored and memorialized. As guests arrived, they were greeted by music from pianist Dave Kenney. Following the opening remarks, the a cappella group Voice Is entertained the audience with holiday selections.
Grand View’s campus is illuminated with more than 10,000 lights this holiday season creating a winter wonderland setting made possible by community donations honoring loved ones. Red lights honor cancer survivors while all other lights are white. A white baby tree decorated in soft hues of pink and blue is adorned with ornaments personalized with the names of the newborns being recognized.
Anyone can dedicate a light for this holiday season now through January 15th by making a $20 minimum contribution to memorialize someone special, honor a person or organization, recognize a cancer survivor or celebrate the birth of a baby.
Members of Voice Is perform holiday songs during the 30th annual Festival of Lights dedication ceremony at Grand View Hospital.
In addition to illuminating a light, the names of those recognized appear in a display case in the hospital lobby. For contributions of $100 or more, the name of the honored or memorialized person will be added to the Eternal Tree plaques displayed in the hospital year-round and a light will be lit during Festival of Lights for years to come.
All funds raised by this Grand View Hospital Auxiliary event become part of a gift to support special projects at the hospital. If you are interested in making a contribution, please call 215-453-4381.
