ALBANY, Ga. – The 2013 Lights of Love ceremony will mark a return to tradition, as the annual event, a collaboration of the Junior Woman's Club of Albany and Phoebe Foundation, will take place outside of the hospital for the first time since 2009. The event is scheduled for Monday, December 9, at 7 p.m.

 “Lights of Love” is an annual tree lighting ceremony that gives the community an opportunity to honor or remember their loved ones while giving a special gift to cancer patients and their families. Cancer survivor Patsy Martin has been chosen as this year’s tree lighter. The ceremony will include special music by Dr. Leroy Bynum. The event will end with the lighting of candles by those attending.

This year’s donations will be used to update the radiation oncology clinic waiting area, including new, comfortable seating more conducive to the needs of patients. The area has remained unchanged for more than 10 years.

For each donation of at least $25 in honor or memory of a loved one or friend, an acknowledgement card will be sent to them or a designated person. Donations can be made online at www.supportphoebe.org/lightsoflove. Checks may be made payable to Phoebe Foundation/Lights of Love, and mailed to Phoebe Foundation/Lights of Love, PO Box 3770, Albany, GA 31706.

For more information call, 229-312-4483.
