Lights For Life
About Lights For Life
Lights for Life is Owensboro Health Foundation's holiday season tribute project at Owensboro Health Regional Hospital and Owensboro Health Muhlenberg Community Hospital, benefitting various patient and family assistance programs throughout the region. Members of our communities are given the opportunity to support Lights for Life by purchasing symbolic lights on the holiday trees at OHRH or OHMCH in honor or in memory of a loved one. The lights make thoughtful gifts to honor family, friends, school teachers, physicians, caregivers, ministers, co-workers, or anyone who has held a special place in your life. The names of those honored with Lights for Life will be listed in the Lights for Life Online Tribute Book, and in tributes published in the Messenger-Inquirer, The Leader News and The Times Argus.
Proceeds from Lights For Life provide funding for a myriad of programs and services that help meet the healthcare needs of patients and their families and the greater community. Owensboro Health Foundation served more than 17,000 individuals in the past year with services such as: free mammograms and other diagnostic services to women, care bears for children in the hospital, free car seats and bike helmets to families in need, equipment to help care for NICU infants in their earliest days, hospitality suites providing a home away from home for families of patients, medication assistance to cancer patients and much more.
There is no better time than the holiday season to touch the lives of those who need it, while honoring those we love. Thank you, and Happy Holidays.
