During the holidays, many people like to take the time to remember or honor loved ones.
One way to do that is through the Lights of Love Program, sponsored by the Ladies Board of Inova Loudoun Hospital.
They will be hosting a special tree lighting ceremony at 5 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 2, in the atrium of Inova Loudoun Hospital’s Lansdowne Campus.
“Lights of Love is a year-round project of remembrance that raises funds for nursing scholarships for those who live and/or work in Loudoun County,” said Verla Page, president of The Ladies Board.
“In 2012 The Ladies Board granted 77 nursing scholarships for a total of over $123,000,” Page added.
For a $10 suggested donation, the name of a loved one will be read at the ceremony and listed in a book of remembrance located in the atrium of the hospital.
Music will be provided by Loudoun County High School’s Chamber Choir and refreshments will be served.
“We invite members of the community, hospital workers, patients, and of course, friends and family of those honored to join us,” said Becky Ottinger, chairman of the Lights of Love program.
Inova Loudoun Hospital is located at 44045 Riverside Parkway, Leesburg. For more information, contact ladiesboard.org or call 703-771-2985.
