Love-Light sale begins Friday

The ThedaCare Medical Center-Shawano Auxiliary will sponsor its 31st annual Love-Light program this month.

For $3, symbolically light a white bulb to honor a loved one’s memory, a colored bulb to honor family or friends or a red/white/blue bulb to honor active military members and living or deceased veterans.

The sale of Love-Lights will be from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. through Nov. 16 at Charlie’s County Market, ThedaCare Physicians and ThedaCare Medical Center-Shawano. Love-Lights can also be purchased at the hospital’s gift shop through Nov. 30.

Proceeds benefit the auxiliary’s scholarship program for area college students in the health care field. This past year, the auxiliary awarded $2,000 scholarships to two local students.

A short ceremony to light the three Love-Light trees will take place 6:30 p.m. Dec. 5 in the courtyard and dining area at ThedaCare Medical Center-Shawano, located at 100 County Road B, Shawano.
