Hospital Auxiliary Kicks of 30th Annual Tree of Lights Campaign

Tree of Lights (300 x 400)The Auxiliary of Memorial Hospital at Easton will kick off its 30th Annual Tree of Lights Campaign on November 25.

According to Nancy Espenhorst, Tree of Lights Chairman, contributions this year will support the funding of new Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) equipment for emergency pediatric airway management. “Use of such specialized equipment is essential in treating pediatric patients in the Emergency Department at University of Maryland Shore Medical Center at Easton,” comments Espenhorst. “Our goal is to raise $12,000 for this ENT equipment which will provide our physicians with the latest technology when performing life saving procedures to clear pediatric airways.”

For a contribution of $5 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.
