CULLMAN, Ala. –  This year’s Cullman Regional Foundation Dr. Herman C. Ensor Lights of Love Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony will be Thursday, Dec. 3 at 6 p.m. The annual event is normally held on the Cullman Regional campus, but this year it will be virtual and live streamed on the Cullman Regional Foundation’s Facebook page.  

Giving a gift of love of $20, $40, $60 or more places a light on the Christmas tree at Cullman Regional as a tribute to someone special. These tax-deductible gifts help support the Foundation’s mission of advancing health care services at the medical center.  

Special acknowledgement cards will be sent to those who are honored and to the families of those being remembered.  If someone honors a specific health care hero at Cullman Regional, a notification will be sent.  

All community members and contributors are invited to join the Foundation via Facebook for the tree lighting ceremony to view a presentation of the names of those being recognized this year.  The virtual program will also include special Christmas music by area artists.        

Donations may be contributed throughout the entire holiday season; gifts received by Tuesday, Dec. 1 will be included in the special ceremony.  Contributions may be made in memory of or in honor of someone special.
