RARITAN TWP., NJ – Hunterdon Medical Center will host its annual Lights of Love tree lighting ceremony on Dec. 4.

For 32 years, the Lights of Love ceremony has been an honored tradition. Each year, in early December, HMC lights the campus with thousands of shining white and blue lights. These lights represent gifts received from donors all over the country to honor or memorialize people who have touched their lives in a special way.

This year’s event will be held from 4:15 to 5:15 p.m. at HMC, located at 2100 Westcott Dr. here. Sponsored by HMC’s Auxiliary, the ceremonies unite family and friends and brightens the holiday sky with lights and music.
