THANK YOU #PEI , You’ve raised $291,575 for medical equipment to help patients at PCH! That is the largest total since Lights for Life began. More than 1800 of you made gifts in memory and in honour of loved ones to help brighten our hospital in so many ways! We thank you most humbly for 27 years of support. Many fundraisers don’t make it to 27, but this longevity speaks to the connection our community has to this cause, to Lights for Life, and to the hospital it benefits. The incredible number of gifts made to Lights for Life this year will make a huge impact in healthcare at PCH.
About Lights for Life
Throughout the month of November, supporters dedicated lights and displays by donation in memory and in honour of their loved ones through the PCH Foundation. All of those light dedications are gathered in a keepsake book that is available in a newspaper box outside the front door of PCH. All donations support the purchase of medical equipment through the Foundation’s $1.788 million 2021 Vital Signs Appeal for the hospital’s greatest needs. These gifts bring the entire front of the hospital to life with a multitude of holiday lights and displays synchronized to music.
This celebratory lighting at the PCH in Summerside is normally an event that hosts hundreds of people and officially brings the lights to life for the month of December. Again this year, the single-night event is replaced with nightly light shows all month at 7pm and 8pm in front of PCH. Viewers can enjoy the show from the comfort of their cars by tuning in to 98.5 FM when they arrive. After the show, you are encouraged to see the additional Lights for Life displays along the boardwalk near the Shipyard and Green’s Shore on Water Street. These downtown displays dedicated by donors in partnership with Downtown Summerside and The City of Summerside also support PCH.
Lights for Life is not possible without the support of our valued sponsors including the Credit Unions who have been the title event sponsors for 14 years now! We thank them as well as our Gold and Silver level supporters.
