CGH10th Annual “Healthy & Bright” Holiday Lighting Ceremony


CGH Medical Center and the CGH Medical Center Auxiliary cordially invite the public to the tenth annual “Healthy & Bright” Holiday Lighting Ceremony to be held on Tuesday, November 14th. The event will begin at 5:30 p.m. in the CGH Main Clinic Lobby, located at 101 E. Miller Road, Sterling.  Help us light up Sterling as thousands of holiday lights illuminate CGH Medical Center, the CGH Main Clinic and CGH Downtown Medical Center.

The event starts at 5:30 p.m. and the ceremonial lighting will take place around 5:45 p.m. Enjoy the holiday lights on the exterior of the hospital and clinic, as well as the lit trees along Locust Street and East LeFevre Road, and 15 W. Third Street. There will be featured entertainment by the Sterling High School Madrigals. A hot cocoa bar and refreshments will be served at the CGH Main Clinic Lobby. This year attendees will receive a special 10th anniversary Christmas ornament.

It is indeed a privilege for the CGH Auxiliary to sponsor the holiday lighting for so many years,” said Deb Keaschall, Manager of Volunteer Services. “We hope these lights add a touch of beauty to one’s day – whether a patient in a hospital bed, a staff member arriving at work on a dark, cold morning or the community served by CGH.” 

The CGH Auxiliary invites you to recognize those who make our lives a brighter place. For any donation amount, the names of loved ones can be read during CGH’s annual holiday lighting ceremony. Your donation will help fund the lights that shine around CGH all holiday season. To donate, call (815) 625-0400 x 5727 or stop by the Auxiliary office, located at the hospital.

“The Auxiliary is grateful for the many donations that help support this project,” Keaschall said.

The lights will be in place from November 14 through mid-January. This event is sponsored by the CGH Medical Center Auxiliary and is committed to being green. LED light strands lead to power savings of about 90% over standard lights.
