BankPlus Presents

Light-A-Light for Children

Purchase your Light on the Batson Children’s Hospital Christmas Tree today! The Light-A-Light project is the oldest Friend’s fundraiser started by a small group of founding board members in 1989. With your help “lighting lights” in honor or memory of someone special, your gifts help make the the holidays brighter for children hospitalized at Batson Children’s Hospital. The annual tree-lighting celebration is the first Tuesday in December and is a great evening for patients and their families as they experience the first lighting of the Christmas Trees and a performance by Ballet Mississippi.  The public is invited to attend The District at Eastover’s annual tree lighting to help kick off “Light a Light” on  December 5 from 5-7 p.m. 

For a $10 donation, you can “Light-A-Light” on the Batson Hospital Christmas tree in honor or memory of someone you know. The honoree or their family will receive a special card letting them know of your thoughtful donation. What a wonderful gift for your friends, neighbors, teachers and that person who is so hard to shop for!

For a larger gift, you can light an “Eternal Light” on the Christmas tree. With a $250 donation at any time of year, we will send a special acknowledgment card to the honoree or their family as well as a handmade glass angel ornament created by stained glass artist, Jerry Hymel. Each year following, the honoree or their family will receive an acknowledgment card telling them that we remembered the Eternal Light during our annual tree-lighting ceremony. This lasting gift is a special way to show someone you care.

If you or your company are interested in our corporate Christmas cards, please email us at friends@friendsofch.org.
