Lights of Love Remembrance service Held

December 5, 2013

The St. Elizabeth Medical Center Foundation held its 13th Annual Lights of Love Candle Lighting and Remembrance Service on Wednesday, December 4 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 were 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 is illuminated during the holiday season by lights, each representing the special people acknowledged through this year’s Campaign.

Proceeds from the event will benefit the purchase of endobronchial ultrasound equipment for the Medical Center, replacement beds for CT/ICU, new furniture for the central admitting waiting area and the renovation and upgrade to the Mohawk Valley Sleep Disorders Center.
