ONANCOCK – The Riverside Shore Memorial Hospital’s 37th annual Festival of Lights will be a virtual celebration this year. The tradition of gathering at the hospital at the beginning of the holiday season has been reinvented, just for 2020, as a Facebook event.
The Book of Honor that is typically handed out at the event lists all who are memorialized or honored. This year the book will scroll across the screen during the Facebook event and will be updated through the month of December.
Lights can be purchased in any quantity for $7 each, and there are opportunities to purchase larger ‘ads’ as well. To participate, go to www.riversideonline.com/shore/auxiliary/upload/form.pdf, or find the link pinned to the top of Riverside Shore Memorial’s Facebook page (www.facebook.com/riversideshorememorial), or call 757-302-2140.
Because honorees receive an acknowledgement of the gift, it’s a thoughtful way to share holiday greetings with loved ones and support a worthy cause as well.
Proceeds from the Auxiliary’s annual events and from their Carousel Gift Shop support technology advances, patient care and staff education at Riverside Shore Memorial Hospital.
