Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital Foundation holding Light Up a Life event


LINCOLN, Ill. (WAND) - The Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital Foundation is celebrating the 31st Annual Light Up a Life Campaign.

The campaign invites the community to honor those living, remember those who have passed, or show appreciation to healthcare professionals providing great care.

"The holiday season is a special time when we celebrate with loved ones as well as honor the memories of those gone before.  The Light Up A Life campaign at ALMH provides a wonderful opportunity to support local healthcare by paying tribute to those who have and will continue to show us the way", said ALMH Foundation Executive Director Sarah Helm.   

Tuesday is the last day to make a gift and submit a list of tribute names. The suggested donation of $10 per name may be designated to purchase medical equipment at ALMH, fund scholarships for students pursuing careers in healthcare, support Memorial Home Services Hospice Care, fund the work of the ALMH Community Health Collaborative or provide general support for future ALMH projects.

Forms are available at ALMH. You can mail Light Up A Life gifts to the ALMH Foundation at 200 Stahlhut Dr. in Lincoln. 

Names received by Tuesday, Dec. 4 will be compiled and presented in a special Lincoln Courier Christmas Eve edition insert.

On Tuesday, ALMH will host the 31st annual Tree Lighting Ceremony and Soup Supper.  The event will begin at 5:30 p.m. on the ALMH Woods Patio and will include a short outdoor ceremony followed by a meal.
