December 7th, the skies lit up over the Prince County Hospital for the 22nd year. Lights for Life gathered a crowd of hundreds in front of PCH to watch the lighting ceremony, remember loved ones and honour those still with us. This annual Prince County Hospital Foundation fundraiser has raised over $3.2 million since it began in 1995; this year reaching $220,170.
Throughout the month of November Lights for Life gifts are made to the PCH Foundation in memory and in honour of loved ones. Every gift has a dedication in honour or in memory of someone special and those dedications are gathered in a book that is handed out at the event. The gifts are represented by lights and displays placed on the outside of the hospital and on one special night each year, the lights are brought to life and will continue to be lit each night until December 31st.
Every dollar raised supports the purchase of medical equipment at PCH. This brings the PCH Foundation closer to our goal of $887,800.00 for 2016. Gifts are accepted for Lights for Life until December 31st. Donations can be made at pchcare.com, by calling (902) 432-2547 or visiting the PCH Foundation office in the hospital lobby.
For their continued support, the PCH Foundation wishes to thank all of the donors, sponsors, entertainers, volunteers and the many people who came to the lighting celebration.
