Hospital holds 27th annual Tree of Lights ceremony


The Martha’s Vineyard Hospital Auxiliary will celebrate the 27th anniversary of the Tree of Lights fundraiser, to benefit Martha’s Vineyard Hospital, on Wednesday, December 8, in the hospital’s main lobby at 4 pm.

Every December, a tree at the hospital is lit with hundreds of lights, each donated by an individual in honor or in memory of a loved one.

Proceeds from the Tree of Lights fundraiser have purchased many needed items for the hospital and supported a variety of department programs.

Lights may be purchased for $20 each in memory or in honor of an individual. Perpetual lights may be purchased for a donation of $200.

All contributions are tax deductible. Checks should be made payable to the Martha’s Vineyard Hospital Auxiliary and mailed to: Martha’s Vineyard Hospital Volunteer Office, P.O. Box 1477, Oak Bluffs, MA 02557 or dropped off at the Volunteer Office at the hospital.
