Make the Season Bright

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.

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), 2 cards at the Icicle Level ($25), and 1 card at the Mistletoe Level ($10). 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.

Donations to Make the Season Bright in Bowling Green will support the Hospitality House, a “home-away-from home” that makes life better for so many families in our communities. Since opening in 2011, the Hospitality House has provided lodging for over 9,200 guests, totaling over 31,000 nights of stay. Guests have visited from 87 counties across Kentucky, 49 different states, and 6 countries. Your gift changes lives!

Make The Season Bright offers a simple and heartfelt way for you to reserve a light in Honor or Memory of someone special this holiday season. These lights are then displayed on the exterior of the Hospitality House through the end of the year.

Funds from the lighting events in Albany, Horse Cave (Caverna), Franklin and Scottsville will benefit Foundation initiatives in their respective communities.
