The Thompson Health Guild is offering community members a special opportunity to recognize and celebrate loved ones this holiday season with the annual Tree of Lights


“The holiday season is a perfect time to reflect on our blessings and seek out ways to make life better for those around us.” 
      – Anonymous 

At this time of year we are often reminded how important it is to connect with family and friends. With a minimum donation of $10, you can sponsor a light in honor or memory of someone special. For each light purchased, the honoree(s) will receive an email letting them know about your gift in their name and inviting them to the Tree Lighting Ceremony on Monday, December 4th at 6:30 p.m. at Thompson Health, 350 Parrish Street, Canandaigua. For lights in memory of a special person an email will be sent to the Memorial Family or Next of Kin. However the donation amount will not be listed. 

A large evergreen tree located just outside of the M.M. Ewing Continuing Care Center on Parrish Street in Canandaigua is decorated with hundreds of beautiful lights for the holiday season. the Tree Lightning Ceremony is held on the first Monday of December and is enjoyed by patients, residents, staff, and community members throughout the holiday season. It is a beautiful way to pay tribute to someone you care about. 

Please consider joining us in bringing forth the light we all need this holiday season. 

Please use the form below (or this mail-in form) to designate your lights. 

A minimum of $10.00 per light is suggested.

All funds raised through this event will be used to benefit UR Medicine Thompson Health, enabling its continuing legacy of exceptional healthcare. 

Thank you for your generosity!
