Vero Beach, FLA (Nov. 22, 2016) — Indian River Medical Center (IRMC) invites the community to its 26th anniversary of the Florence Booms Celebration of Lights Ceremony, Thursday, Dec. 8, at 6 pm outside IRMC’s visitors’ entrance. Following the ceremony, refreshments will be provided in the Ambulatory Services Center lobby.
Please join Reverend Robert Bremer and Rabbi Michael Birnholz as they welcome the holidays. Share the joy of the season, sing holidays songs and watch the ceremony of lights. Highlights include songs of the season performed by Jeanne Warren and the Shalom Singers.
With light donations ranging from $5 to $500, the Celebration of Lights plays a dual role as it heralds in the holidays, while at the same time raises money for worthwhile projects. Contributions for a light can be made in honor or in memory of a relative, friend or loved one. For details, call Maureen Luther, director, Volunteer Services, at (772) 567-4311, ext. 1133.
The money raised through the Celebration of Lights is used to purchase necessary equipment and education programs that allow the women’s health care team to continue to provide quality healthcare to the community. Prior purchases include newborn cardiac monitors, birthing beds, infant warmers, fetal monitors, apnea monitors, an overhead lullaby system, thermometers, otoscopes, ophthalmoscopes, a bili blanket, jaundice meters, infant hearing screening equipment and educational programs.
