Holiday Lights Celebration
Tuesday, December 10, 2013 at 7 p.m.
Methodist Medical Center Main Lobby
What does hospitality mean to you? A friendly face? Delicious food? A comfortable room? Webster’s defines hospitality as “the generous and friendly treatment of visitors and guests.” I’d say that just about sums up our mission for the last 17 years at the Hospitality Houses of the Methodist Medical Center Foundation.
With your help, we have provided comfort and a home away from home for thousands of patients and their families. Your support is the key to the success of this wonderful program. We could not have made it this far without you!
Our guests find “generous and friendly treatment” through free lodging, food, rest and, most of all, companionship for the journey as they deal with stressful times and difficult diagnoses. Each year we are challenged to raise 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 2013 Holiday Lights for Health campaign will help build this endowment. Your gift ensures the compassionate service of the Hospitality Houses will always be available to the patients and families who need it now and in the future.
Won’t you join us, please? A donation to the Holiday Lights campaign is a unique and wonderful way to honor friends 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!

"Hospitality is a word that means a lot of things. This house is a hospitality HOME. It was so comforting to know that I didn't have to worry about anything but to focus on my husband. Thank you so much for your support and prayers. I'm sure there is a reward waiting..."
guests from Grainger County, Tennessee
"I didn't know a place like this existed until I got sick and needed treatment for six weeks. I knew it would be too much to drive and was told about the Hospitality Houses. Never, I mean never, have we been treated with Christian love so great as we have here. The house had everything we needed, food we wanted, and they even gave us a quilt and said they would pray for us. God bless those people at the Hospitality House."
guests from Kentucky
"Where do we begin? After 8 1/2 hours of driving to our 31 year old daughter who was on a ventilator and near death, the last thing on our minds was finding a hotel. From the moment we walked in we were treated like family. We will never forget the angels that we met here and the way they reached out to us during a very difficult time."
guests from Ohio
