The Memorial Health System is lighting its holiday trees for the annual Love Lights celebration, now in its 20th year. The Love Lights celebration will be held on Thursday, December 2 from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. in the surgery waiting area on the first floor of Marietta Memorial Hospital. The ceremony will include entertainment, special guests, refreshments and a short program at 6:30 p.m. The event is open to the public.
Wendy Wharff will be celebrating her first ceremony in her new position. “Donations make it possible for hospice to give the best care, support and comfort for patients coping with life-limiting illnesses,” says Wendy Wharff, executive director of the Memorial Health Foundation. The hospice team is characterized by compassion, versatility and clinical experience, helping hospice families face life’s end with dignity.
Love Lights contributors make charitable gifts to remember those they love with donations represented by glowing white lights on the Love Lights trees.
