RARITAN TWP., N.J. – Hunterdon Medical Center held its annual Lights of Love ceremony recently, a time-honored tradition here for 31 years.

Each year, an evergreen tree is illuminated with thousands of shining white lights. The lights represent gifts received from donors all over the country to honor or memorialize people who have touched their lives in a special way.

Proceeds from the program benefit a variety of HMC programs.

The lighting ceremony included entertainment from performers from Star Maker School and Crossroads Entertainment. Hunterdon Healthcare Foundation’s Phil Beekman offered opening remarks; Chaplain Christopher Voorhees spoke about the importance of the season.

Joyce Hervey, who is President of the HMC Auxiliary, once again had the honor of counting down the clock to the illumination.

Lights of Love is just one way the community supports the mission of Hunterdon Healthcare System, which is the corporate parent of Hunterdon Medical Center. For more information, call the Foundation at 908-788-6141.
