Join the 2021 Gifts of Light!
November 1, 2021
The season has arrived where you can again give Gifts of Light to those who are spending time in the hospital over the holidays, and for those visiting them. Having the hospital grounds lit up with thousands of colorful lights sends a wonderful message of hope and healing during the holidays. The Little Red Trees are also back again, as a gift of beauty for our community during this festive season.
Sponsor a tree in memory of a loved one, or sponsor in the name of your children, your grandchildren or your family’s name. This year we’re recognizing every healthcare worker in our region. From kitchen staff to cleaning personnel, doctors and nurses to admin — they have all cared for our community through a very difficult time. Consider sponsoring a tree in honour of someone you know who works in healthcare, or sponsor a tree with a message of hope for ALL healthcare workers.
Your donation will contribute to future projects that will continue to improve healthcare in our region. Without substantial community contributions, these improvements would not come to fruition.
As a sponsor of the Pearl, Sapphire, Emerald and Diamond levels you will receive the following:
- Your name (or your loved one’s name) placed on a sign beside your tree. Larger sponsors will receive larger signs.
- Your name included on the list of Gifts of Light Sponsors on the Foundation’s website
- Your sponsorship acknowledged in The Carillon
- A charitable donation receipt issued for the entire amount of your contribution to The Bethesda Foundation.
Due to COVID-19 and the risks associated with mass gatherings, we will not be hosting a community tree lighting event this year. But as always, the hospital grounds will be lit up for the month of December!
