Lights for Life Holiday Celebration Honors Longtime Nurse

The Fauquier Hospital Auxiliary will sponsor the annual Lights for Life celebration at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, December 1, in the hospital’s Sycamore Room.

Consider honoring a loved one by purchasing a light that will brighten a spruce tree on Hospital Hill during the holiday season.

Names of donors and those honored will be included in a program if the donation is received by November 10. Donations of $7 per light will go towards the Auxiliary’s pledge of a vein viewer for the hospital. Nurses using a vein finder are able to locate a patient’s veins more easily, making the administration of an IV less stressful for patients.

Lois Sutphin, RN, an Infusion Center nurse, will receive special recognition as this year’s Top of the Tree honoree. Mrs. Sutphin began working at Fauquier Hospital in 1973. She has been a strong supporter of the health system and is active in the American Cancer Society.

Patron donations are those between $100 and $499. Angel donations are at $500 or more; at this level of giving, each light will be $5. Donation forms may be found at the front desk of the hospital and at the Fauquier Health Foundation offices at 170 W. Shirley Avenue, Suite 101 in Warrenton. You may also download a form from Fauquier Health’s website at http://www.fauquierhealth.org/ (Go to Ways to Give and look for the Lights for Life donation form).
