For more than 25 years the Med Center Health Foundation’s Make the Season Bright Program has offered a unique way to honor someone special, while also supporting health-centered missions for those you may never meet. Your single gesture can have both meaning and impact.
Beginning in early November, you can “purchase” a holiday light in honor or memory of someone special in your life. Lights are available at $25, $50, or $100 levels. New for 2021, a $10 donation adds a light in honor of our frontline healthcare heroes. A special strand of green lights will be placed on the tree this year in honor of Med Center Health employees.
How will the person I recognize know I have made a donation in their honor?
Once a donation is made, Med Center Health Foundation will mail acknowledgement cards to the donor that they may send to those they are recognizing. Each donor will receive 5 cards at Poinsettia Level ($100), 3 cards at Silver Bells Level ($50), and 2 cards at the Icicle Level ($25). An e-card will also be available to send via email.
How will the donations be used?
Funds raised through light sales and sponsorships go to work immediately supporting the non-profit programs supported by Med Center Health Foundation. This year, funds will support the Hospitality House in Bowling Green. In the past 10 years since the Hospitality House opened, over one third of the guests served live right here in Southcentral Kentucky.
Virtual Tree Lighting Event
The health and safety of our community is our primary concern. For that reason, we will present this year’s tree lighting virtually. You may watch the event live on Facebook and WBKO during their 5 p.m. broadcast.
