[November 12, 2014]  LINCOLN - Tickets are on sale now for ‘Tis the Season Holiday Luncheon and Card Party, a fundraising tradition of the Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital Auxiliary. The event supports the local Lifeline program. This year, the event will take place at the American Legion on December 8, 2014 at noon. Participants will enjoy lunch, a game of bridge or pinochle, or both.

Lifeline is an easy-to-use personal response service worn as a pendant or a wristband that ensures assistance and a quick response from emergency services. The service is a vital component to helping more people in our community live independently and safely in their homes. The funds raised at the event help fund the purchase of new Lifeline units and replacement batteries. ALMH staff members install, maintain, and educate the user and family members in homes and apartments throughout Logan, DeWitt, and eastern Mason Counties.

Lynne Metz, Director of Volunteer and Special Services at ALMH, expressed her gratitude for the support of the Lifeline program.

“We are blessed to have the Auxiliary, which through fundraising efforts and donors has been able to keep Lifeline going over the years,” Metz said. “Lifeline offers family members peace of mind for their loved ones who are home by themselves.”
