Honor loved ones by sponsoring a light

The 28th annual Lights of Life Christmas tree will light up Ozarks Medical Center (OMC) in a ceremony at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 5, in OMC's main lobby. The event is free and open to the public.

The Christmas tree will be the focus of the newly decorated lobby of Ozarks Medical Center.

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 $15.

While sponsorships are in honor of special people, the contributions will be placed in funds that, in some cases, continue to help others in perpetuity.

“Join us in kicking off the Christmas season at Ozarks Medical Center,” said Carol Silvey, Vice President for Advancement of the OMC Foundation. “Individuals may place lights on the tree to honor someone important, to recognize an addition to their family, or to remember someone special. The tree will shine throughout the holidays. 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, OMC Hospice, 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 ceremony will feature guest speaker Jennifer Moore. There will also be a musical performance by members of the West Plains High School Choir and Harpist Mariam Zeidan, daughter of Jennifer Moore.

For information or to request a donation form, call 417-853-5200. Donation forms are available at the visitors’ information desk in the main lobby of the medical center, at the OMC Foundation office, located at No. 12 Parkway Center.
