Light Memory

Since it began almost 10 Christmases ago, the annual “Light a Memory” fundraiser has raised over $30,000 for the Hotel Dieu Hospital Foundation. It has become a popular event since it blends the warmth of dazzling Christmas lights at the Hospital with the fond remembrance of loved ones and donations which help the patients of Hotel Dieu. It reflects the true spirit of Christmas.

Here Is How It Works

  • Buy a Christmas light bulb from the Foundation representative for $10 or 3 for $25 in memory of loved ones up to the end of November. The bulbs are placed on the outdoor Christmas trees at the Hospital entrance. All the funds raised go to buy equipment for the patients of the Hospital. 

  • A booklet is published with the names of donors and loved ones to be remembered. It is distributed to all who attend the lighting of the Christmas trees at the “Light a Memory” Ceremony. 

  • The Ceremony consists of Christmas carols, Bible readings and the tree lighting,  followed by a warming lunch and social time for all, in the foyer of the Hospital.

  • Bulbs are sold at various locations - e.g.. Save-Easy, the Hospital foyer, the Andover Elementary School Christmas Craft Sale (Bazaar). Tax deductible receipts are provided. 

  • Hotel Dieu Hospital in Perth-Andover, NB serves the people of Victoria County, with some patients coming from Carleton County to the south and from as far north as St. Leonard.
