Archbold Foundation Hosts Annual Tree of Lights Ceremony

THOMASVILLE —

 

The holidays are right around the corner, and our community will once again celebrate the spirit of the season with the Archbold Foundation Tree of Lights.

 

For some in South Georgia, it’s a tradition to honor and remember friends and loved ones by making contributions to the Archbold Foundation.

Individuals honored and family members of those remembered receive a beautiful card letting them know a gift has been given. Gifts are acknowledged and cards for the Tree of Lights and Hanukkah are sent throughout December. A donation of $10 per individual honored is suggested, but gifts of any size are welcome.

 

Donors, families and the community are invited to the lighting of the live tree—a ceremony that heralds the beginning of the holiday season and offers a celebration of life and remembrance for attendees.

 

This year’s tree lighting ceremony will take place Monday, December 3 in the newly renovated lobby of John D. Archbold Memorial Hospital.

 

Guests will enjoy refreshments and music by the Thomas County Middle School Gospel Choir and the Cross Creek Elementary 4th Grade Chorus, followed by the anticipated arrival of Santa Claus.

 

The Tree of Lights tradition began 24 years ago as part of the effort to raise funds for the first Lewis Hall Singletary Oncology Center. For the past 14 years, contributions have benefited Hospice of Southwest Georgia.

 

For more information about the Archbold Foundation Tree of Lights or to make a donation, call 229-228-2924 or visit www.archboldfoundation.org.
