Crouse Hospital's lights of love to ignite

WHAT: Ten-year-old Michael Patterson Jones, the first baby born in

Crouse Hospital's Kienzle Family Maternity Center when it opened a

decade ago, will flip the switch to illuminate 3,000 lights on the

Crouse clock tower for the Crouse Hospital Auxiliary's twenty-second

annual Lights of Love Campaign. Each light glows in honor or memory of

someone special as designated by donors to the campaign.

Proceeds from this year's campaign will benefit the Kienzle Family Maternity Center, the area's leader in deliveries, which is celebrating ten years of serving moms, babies, and families. A custom-designed birthing bed, blanket warmer and heated newborn scale will all be purchased to enhance the delivery and post-partum experience for Crouse's newest moms and their babies

4:30 to 6 p.m. (Crouse Clock Tower lighting at 5:15 p.m.)

WHY: Since 1888, the Crouse Hospital Auxiliary has raised millions of

dollars to help fund hospital equipment, programs and services as well

community members, generates funds from sources such as the hospital

gift shop, special events like Lights of Love, various drawings, book

sales and membership dues.
