Tree of Lights celebrates 22 years

PRINCETON — The Perry Memorial Hospital Auxiliary Tree of Lights Committee recently met on the lawn of Perry Memorial Hospital to prepare its annual lighting of the tree as part of its annual campaign.

A donation of $10 will light one light on the Tree of Lights and a donation of $100 will light a special light on the star. When a donation of $20 or more is given, an acknowledgement card will be sent to the person or family the donation is honoring. A tax deductible receipt will also be sent when requested.

This year, donations to the Tree of Lights will be used to purchase blood pressure cuffs for each patient room in the hospital’s Family Acute Care Unit.

Donation brochures are available at the Perry Memorial gift shop and at Edwards Jones Investments. Donations may be sent to Melody Schultz, Marketing Department, 530 Park Ave. East, Princeton, IL 61356. Checks should be made payable to Tree of Lights. For more information, contact Deb Kirley at 815-875-6565.
