[November 22, 2014]  LINCOLN - More than 2000 individuals and groups will be celebrated this year as families and friends gather for the 27th annual Light Up A Life program.

All are welcome to attend this yearís event, which will be held at Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital on Tuesday, December 2 at 5:30 p.m.

Participants may gather inside the ALMH lobby, and then proceed to the hospitalís east-side patio. Once outside, they will light a candle, sing along with cherished Christmas tunes, and, if they wish, share the names of those they honored or memorialized. A complimentary soup and sandwich dinner will follow in the adjacent Woods Cafe.

Dr. Paul Boatman will lead the service. Mrs. Jewel Strauss is this yearís honorary chairperson.

Each Light Up A Life tribute directly benefits patient care in Logan County. The suggested donation of $10 per name may also be designated to purchase medical equipment at ALMH, support needs of Logan and Mason County patients served by Memorial Home Services Hospice Care, fund scholarships for future ALMH healthcare providers, or the Moving Forward Weight Loss Program so that more community members can participate for a very reasonable fee.

There is still time to submit tributes. However, names must be received by the Abraham Lincoln Healthcare Foundation at the close of business on Friday, December 5 to be included in published listings. Forms are available at ALMH, and can be downloaded from and mailed to Light Up A Life, 200 Stahlhut Drive in Lincoln.
