ROME, N.Y. >> Barry Fu­neral Home is the cor­po­rate spon­sor of the Rome Twigs Tree of Lights 2018 cam­paign. The com­pany has do­nated $1,000 to the Twigs fundraiser for Rome Memo­rial Hos­pi­tal. A vis­i­ble sym­bol of the sea­son, the Tree of Lights project be­gan in 1989.

The Tree of Lights re­cep­tion and cer­e­mony will be­gin at 6:30 p.m. Sun­day, Dec. 2 in the hos­pi­tal lobby. At 7 p.m., guests will move out­side to light the tree. Pas­tor Sam Pen­der­grast of Rome’s First Pres­by­te­rian Church will be hon­ored for his years of de­voted ser- vice to the com­mu­nity. A scroll dis­play­ing the names of donors and their hon­ored per­sons will be dis­played at the event.

Con­tri­bu­tions to the Tree of Lights cam­paign help the Twigs, a not-for-profit or­ga­ni­za­tion, con­tinue its long tra­di­tion of ded­i­cated ser­vice in sup­port of the hos­pi­tal and its mis­sion. All do­na­tions are tax de­ductible and all monies are used for the pur­chase of hos­pi­tal equip­ment and to sup­port pro­grams of the hos­pi­tal. Last year’s Tree of Lights cam­paign raised more than $10,000. Those dol­lars, along with other monies raised by the Twigs, go to­ward pro­grams that con­trib­ute to pa­tient com­fort and care at Rome Memo­rial Hos­pi­tal.

In­di­vid­u­als may pur­chase lights to honor a liv­ing per­son, re­mem­ber a de­ceased loved one, or ex­press thanks; each light on the tree rep­re­sents a gift of love and re­mem­brance. In or­der to be in­cluded on the scroll, do­na­tions of $5.00 or more for a light must be re­ceived by noon on Fri­day, Nov. 16, ad­dressed to Rome Memo­rial Hos­pi­tal, At­ten­tion Tree of Lights ,1500 N.
