26th Annual OMC Lights of Life tree lighting is Dec. 1
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.
