In June, Sarah Bush Lincoln Health Foundation sponsors a golf benefit to support the Funding the Future Campaign. More than 200 golfers enjoy the day. Prizes are awarded on each of the 18 holes. Each year, a vacation trip is raffled and won. Commemorative gifts are given to all golfers and a reception is held at the end of the day to celebrate the winners of each flight and award prizes.
Be sure to join us next year on Friday, June 14, 2013.
Festival of Trees
Sarah Bush Lincoln Health Center begins the holiday season in November with the annual Festival of Trees. More than 30 beautifully decorated trees, wreaths and specialty items transform the Lumpkin Family Center for Health Education into a holiday wonderland. After everyone has enjoyed the festivities, the items are auctioned and sold at a Gala Event. Net proceeds support Funding the Future Campaign.
In addition to the holiday trees, a Memory Tree adorns the center of the room and honors those who have received hospice care. Ornaments are engraved with names in memory of a loved one. Proceeds from the Memory Tree support Lincolnland Hospice.
Mark your calendars to attend the Festival of Trees on November 16 and 17, 2012.
