Honor loved ones by sponsoring a light or ornament

The 26th annual Lights of Life Christmas tree will light up Ozarks Medical Center in a ceremony at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 1, in OMC's main lobby. The event is free and open to the public.

The OMC Foundation Lights of Life campaign gives area residents an opportunity to honor and remember their loved ones by sponsoring a tree light for $10 or a tree ornament for $25.

“Join with us in kicking off the Christmas season at Ozarks Medical Center,” said Ward Franz, Executive Director of the OMC Foundation. “Individuals place lights and ornaments on the tree to honor someone important, recognize an addition to their family or to remember someone special. The tree will shine throughout the holiday. We hope you will join us for this special holiday tradition that also supports a wonderful cause, local health care.”

Funds raised during the Lights of Light campaign benefit several programs and services, including the OMC Foundation Endowment, the OMC Cancer Treatment Center, Riverways Hospice of OMC, OMC Heart Care Services, or OMC Women and Children Services. Donors may designate which services or programs he or she wishes to benefit. Acknowledgement cards will be sent to each donor and to the designated honorees.

The tree-lighting ceremony is free and open to the public. The ceremony will feature guest speaker Mrs. Nancy L. Franz. There will also be a musical performance by members of the West Plains High School Choir.
