Hôtel-Dieu Grace Healthcare Continues a Community Tradition; Launches 27th Annual Tree of Lights Campaign

 

WHAT

The Tree of Lights Giving Campaign began at the Grace site of Hôtel-Dieu Grace 27 years ago. Over the years, families in Windsor and Essex County have given generously to make the Tree of Lights Campaign a success through donations in memory of, or in honour of those special people in their lives. For every donation made an ornament is placed on a Christmas Tree  at Hôtel-Dieu Grace Healthcare and an ornament is sent to the donor to place on their own Christmas Tree at home. This year's Tree of Lights Campaign is raising funds in support of the Triple P Parenting Program at Hôtel-Dieu Grace Healthcare.

 

Event Highlights:

  • Official Launch of the 2013 Campaign
  • Lighting of the Christmas Tree in the Ken Lewenza Lobby - Tower Building entrance
  • Representatives from each department will place an ornament on the Christmas Tree in memory of or in honour of someone special
  • Entertainment by members of the local Salvation Army Band
  • Refreshments
