Tree of Lights: Annual Campaign

The Tree of Lights is our major annual fundraising campaign and has been for over 25 years. Funds raised from the Tree of Lights supports the healthcare needs of the people who utilize the services of Virginia Gay Hospital and our clinics in Atkins, Van Horne, Vinton, and Urbana. People have the opportunity to purchase various lights or ornaments in memory of or in honor of anyone of their choosing.

Most donations to the Tree of Lights are received over the holiday season, however, gifts are certainly welcomed throughout the calendar year. All gifts are tax-deductible and will be recognized in the local newspaper, on the Foundation website, and on the donor board in the hospital and clinic lobbies.

The Tree of Lights Annual Campaign was started by Ruth Mayhew using the large pine tree that once grew where the fountain is now at the entrance to Virginia Gay Hospital. Donations added lights to the tree in memory of loved ones, and this annual campaign has been a hit ever since. “We are excited to continue the tradition of the VGH Health Care Foundation Tree of Lights,” says Robin Martin, Director of the Virginia Gay Hospital Health Care Foundation (VGHHF), “continuing the legacy of Ruth Mayhew who envisioned the opportunity to commemorate loved ones and promote fellowship during the holiday season. La Teresa Music, our first Foundation Director, had a passion for the Tree of Lights annual campaign and for the mission of VGHHF. La Teresa Music was the face of VGHHF giving it solid ground, structure, and the sustainability that we enjoy today. Mike Timmermans took Mrs. Music’s lead, he increased awareness, supported new construction, and provided new charitable opportunities. The Tree of Lights Annual Campaign has been able to support and help sustain the needed equipment and improvements of Virginia Gay Hospital over the years.”

It is with deep gratitude that we thank all of our 2021 Tree of Lights donors and hope for your continued support for our 2022 campaign.
