Every year the Medical Center Foundation of Hartford is privileged to host the Tree of Life Celebration.  This year it is on Wednesday, Dec. 5th at the Aurora Medical Center at 5PM right at the Main Entrance.  This FREE event will have all your favorite things. Heartwarming stories of love, music, food and fun for the whole family.  Our special tree lighters this year are Rick and Gigi Kupka.  They are long time supporters of the MCF of Hartford who understand the meaning of love by donating their time, talents and treasures to our Foundation.  We will also hear from local community leaders who are committed to keeping our community safe and connected in times of need. Our musical guests are the Slinger Vocal Jazz Choir. The directors is Heather Peters.  Come and be a part of this event.  Our elderly, disabled and persons living alone at home need your support. They know that when they push their lifeline button, someone  will help them. This life saving support system is PRICELESS.  Lifelines save lives every day.  Push a button and instantly your loved one is connected.  Every 11 seconds a lifeline is pushed.  That means a connection is made to help and to assist right away.  The MCF of Hartford installs and financially assists community members who can’t afford a lifeline on their own.  There are hundreds in our community that can honestly say that without the lifeline they would not be here today. Our community continues to make this program a priority.  Your gift of love allows people who can’t afford a lifeline an opportunity to receive financial help.  The colored lights are setup to show the love and support for those in need.  White Lights are $10, Red Lights are $25, and Blue Lights are $100.  A lifeline in the home starts at $25/month.  One year support is $300.  Any amount given will be used to help local lifeline needs. Helping local needs is important to you and to the MCF of Hartford.  The Personal Emergency Lifeline Program has been around for over 33 years.  The plan is to keep helping and to keep saving lives every day.  Thank you to our special sponsors: Anytime Fitness, Confections for Any Occasion, Edward Jones Hartford Team, Landmark Credit Union, Hartford Wine & Spirits, ASAP Towing, Hometown Appliances.  Thank you for your continued support.  To donate https://www.mcfhartford.org/tree-life-celebration/
