Newark, NY – The Newark-Wayne Community Hospital Auxiliary will host the 30th annual holiday “Tree of Lights” illumination ceremony on Monday, December 5, 2016 at 7:30 pm, outside of the hospital’s temporary main entrance, next to the emergency room. Holiday lights in honor and in memory of loved ones are available for purchase.
The holiday season is a good time to celebrate and honor friends and family members who are with us, and those who have passed away but who continue to touch our lives. The “Tree of Lights” ceremony is a long-standing community tradition that celebrates loved ones and also benefits the patients of Newark-Wayne Community Hospital and the residents of DeMay Living Center. Each light on the holiday trees at Newark Hospital and DeMay Living Center represents a gift made in honor or in memory of someone special.
To sponsor a light, please send the name of the person to be honored or remembered, along with the name and address of the person who will receive an acknowledgement card to: Auxiliary Tree of Lights; Newark-Wayne Community Hospital; PO Box 111; Newark, New York, 14513. Please be sure to include a donation for each individual being honored – $10 for one gold level light or $5 for one silver level light. Checks may be made payable to the Newark-Wayne Community Hospital (NWCH) Auxiliary. Donations will be accepted throughout the holiday season but must be received by November 18, 2016 to be included in the program book.
Newark-Wayne Community Hospital Auxiliary members work to support the hospital and DeMay Living Center through fundraising projects, and serve as advocates and volunteers. This year the “Tree of Lights” event is chaired by interim auxiliary president, Carole Nary. For questions, please call 315-331-6496.
