For the past thirty-six years, Mary Washington Hospital Auxiliary (MWH
Auxiliary) has gathered with friends and family to honor loved ones during
the Mary Washington Hospital Auxiliary Annual Tree of Lights. Even though
the past two years have brought challenges we never dreamt of experiencing,
we are pleased to announce we are moving forward with the annual tree lighting.
For your safety, this year’s lighting will be conducted differently,
forgoing an in-person event. We invite you to drive past the tree located
in front of Mary Washington Hospital and reflect upon thoughts and memories
of loved ones. The tree will be lit at dusk on Tuesday, December 7 and
remain lit throughout the holiday season. The tree lighting will be streamed
on the Mary Washington Healthcare Facebook page. All donors will receive
a link to the event via email.
While our ability to gather has diminished, the need for financial support
is as great now as ever. Proceeds from the Annual Tree of Lights benefit
programs and services within Mary Washington Healthcare’s Regional
Cancer Center. Some examples include complementary therapies such as art,
music, and massage to help improve quality of life for patients; counseling
and navigator services to help patients better understand their disease
and treatment options; and personal care services to help improve self-image
and recovery time.
MWH Auxiliary has raised over $2 million over the past twelve years through
the generosity of our community and wishes to continue financial support
of this worthwhile cause for years to come.
If you would like to sponsor a light for the tree to recognize a loved
complete the information on this flyer and return it to us, along with a minimum contribution of $20.00 per light.
