• Kris-Tech Wire is the corporate sponsor of the Rome Twigs’ 2014 Tree of Lights campaign. The company has donated $1,000 to the Twigs fundraiser for Rome Memorial Hospital. A visible symbol of the season, the Tree of Lights project began in 1989.

    The Tree of Lights reception will begin at 6:30 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 7 in the hospital lobby. At 7:00 we will move outside to light the tree. Paul Temple, MD will be honored for his many years of devoted service to Rome Memorial Hospital. Entertainment, refreshments and a scroll displaying the names of donors and their honored persons are planned.

    Contributions to the Tree of Lights campaign help the Twigs, a not-for-profit organization, continue its long tradition of dedicated service in support of the hospital and its mission. All donations are tax deductible and all monies go to the Rome Twigs for purchase of hospital equipment and to support programs of the hospital. Last year’s Tree of Lights campaign raised more than $12,650. Those dollars, along with other monies raised by the Twigs in 2014, go toward programs that contribute to patient comfort and care at Rome Memorial Hospital, including a new infant monitoring security system for the hospital’s maternity department.

    Individuals may purchase lights to honor a living person, remember a deceased loved one, or express thanks; each light on the tree represents a gift of love and remembrance. In order to be included on the scroll, donations of $5.00 or more for a light must be received by noon on Thursday, November 20, addressed to Rome Memorial Hospital, Attention Tree of Lights, 1500 N. James St., Rome, NY 13440. Please make checks payable to Rome Twigs.
