Hospital Auxiliary to Kick Off 31st Annual Tree of Lights Campaign

For immediate release: November 24, 2014

The Auxiliary of Memorial Hospital at Easton will kick off its 31st Annual Tree of Lights Campaign with a tree lighting ceremony on Tuesday, November 25 at 4pm, in front of University of Maryland Shore Medical Center at Easton.  

According to Nancy Espenhorst, Tree of Lights Chairman, contributions this year will support the funding of new ultrasound equipment for the Emergency Department at University of Maryland Shore Medical Center at Easton.  “Our goal is to raise $10,000 for this equipment which will provide our emergency physicians with the latest technology when treating patients,” comments Espenhorst.

For a contribution of $10 or more, a red or gold light can be purchased for the holiday tree in front of University of Maryland Shore Medical Center at Easton. Red lights are tributes to family members and friends, living or deceased. Gold lights honor loved ones serving in the military. A donation of $100 or more will purchase a white Life Light, which will be illuminated every year. The name of each person recognized through the purchase of any light will appear on scrolls displayed in the Medical Center throughout the holiday season.

The Auxiliary of Memorial Hospital at Easton is a volunteer organization that raises funds to benefit programs and services at University of Maryland Shore Medical Center at Easton.  For additional information about the 31st Annual Tree of Lights or the upcoming tree lighting ceremony, contact Nancy Espenhorst at 443-746-3338 or by e-mail at nlehre@goeaston.net.
