Southeast Georgia Health System Foundation Hosts Lights of Courage Ceremony to Honor and Remember Loved Ones and Caregivers

The holidays are usually a joyful time of year, filled with family and friends, gift exchanges and traditional celebrations. However, it’s also a time when our thoughts turn to loved ones we’ve lost through the years but whose memories continue to shine in our hearts.

To pay tribute to those memories, Southeast Georgia Health System Foundation will hold its annual Lights of Courage tree-lighting ceremony on Thursday, Dec. 9, 6-7 p.m. During the event, hundreds of lights will be lit in honor and memory of loved ones and in recognition of the dedicated caregivers who selflessly cared for them during their time of need.

Everyone is invited to purchase one or more lights for the Lights of Courage tree to honor a special person in their life. Each light represents a $25 donation to the Southeast Georgia Health System Foundation.

To purchase a light, contact Krista Robitz, director, Southeast Georgia Health System Foundation, at 912-466-3360 or visit Those being honored or remembered with a light will be listed in the evening’s program. Honorees or their families will be notified of the donation made in their name.

Community members are invited to attend the tree-lighting ceremony on Thursday, Dec. 9, 6-7 p.m., at the Nunnally House and Gumaer Gardens, 3215 Kemble Avenue in Brunswick.
