Lights of Love Remembrance Service


The St. Elizabeth Medical Center Foundation will hold their 14th Annual Lights of Love Candle Lighting and Remembrance Service on Wednesday, December 3 at Our Lady of Lourdes Church. Lights of Love is an annual fundraising campaign, presented by Empower Federal Credit Union and co-chaired by Bunny Gottuso and Christine Abbass.

Gifts can be made in memory or in honor of a loved one, in celebration of a birth or special event, in recognition of a patient, in honor and acknowledgement of Medical Center staff, given as a holiday gift, or as a friend of the Medical Center. The Medical Center will be illuminated during the holiday season by lights, each representing the special people acknowledged through this year’s Campaign.

Proceeds from Lights of Love will be used to update patient care rooms and patient safety and security. For information, please call 734-4287, email or you may also contribute online by visiting All contributions are tax-deductible.
