November 23, 2018

GALLIPOLIS— Holzer Center for Cancer Care is kicking off the holiday season with an “Illumination of Hope” Christmas Tree Lighting on Wednesday, Nov. 28, at 5:30 p.m. in their facility at 170 Jackson Pike.

The event is designed to raise money for the Holzer Center for Cancer Care Patient Donation fund, which is used to purchase gift cards for gas, food items, etc. for those cancer patients and their families who may need an extra hand during treatments.

Donations in honor or in memory of an individual can be made at the Cancer Center. Information can also be obtained from Holzer’s Facebook page.

This year’s personalized ornament will carry the name of the honoree and be placed on a Christmas tree that will remain in the Center’s healing garden throughout the Holiday season.

A reading of the names will recognize all the honorees during the special ceremony. River Valley High School Choir will be at the event, providing musical entertainment for those in attendance. Miss Gallipolis in Lights, Samantha Burris, will light this year’s tree.

To order an ornament, please call Amity Wamsley at 740-441-3572 or send information to info@holzer.org. These personalized ornaments may be picked up at the Cancer Resource Center in the Holzer Center for Cancer Care.

If you would like to honor a special person with an ornament, please submit the name and donation to the Cancer Center by Tuesday, Nov. 27. For more information about the event, call 740-441-3572.
