Holiday Lights Celebration
Tuesday, December 9, 2014 at 7 p.m.
Methodist Medical Center Main Lobby
“A godsend,” “kindness and concern,” “a shelter from the storm,” “a blessing” …
These are the words our guests use to describe the Hospitality Houses of Methodist Medical Center Foundation. And, they are the words that describe you!
The Hospitality Houses would not be here without your support. You impacted the lives of more than 200 guests in the last year alone! With your help, we have provided comfort and a home away from home for thousands of patients and their families over the last 18 years. We could not have made it this far without your generosity.
At the Houses, our guests find free lodging, food, rest and, most of all, companionship for the journey as they deal with stressful times and difficult diagnoses. Each year we must raise the funds to maintain our Hospitality Houses and ensure that all of our guests are provided the very best hospitality we can give.
A $1.5 million endowment is being created to support the Manly and CALM houses in perpetuity. Unless otherwise designated, your contribution to the 2014 Holiday Lights for Health campaign will help build this endowment. Your gift ensures the Hospitality Houses will always be available to the patients and families who need it.
Won’t you join us, please? A donation to the Holiday Lights campaign is a wonderful way to honor friends, co-workers, and loved ones during this season of giving. We’ll share your generosity by sending special honorarium or memorial cards to whomever you designate when you make your gift.
Light up a life with us this holiday season!

“This place is surely a godsend. We slept peacefully here and were not so stressed about money or other things going on right now. We had to travel 16 hours one way just to get here to see my husband. Thanks so much and may God bless you all.”

“If something bad is going to happen to a person, this is a real good town for it to happen in. They know how to take care of folks here.”
