Lights of Love Remembrance Service


The St. Elizabeth Medical Center Foundation will hold their 15th Annual Lights of Love Candle Lighting and Remembrance Service on Wednesday, December 2 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.
