Love Light, Shine Bright Event Is Thursday, Dec. 17
The Greater Good of Fort Wayne, Mad Anthonys Children’s Hope House and Lutheran Children’s Hospital have again teamed up to bring holiday cheer to patients hospitalized around the Christmas season. Love Light, Shine Bright is an exchange of headlight and flashlight beams between community members who remain inside their vehicles and patients inside Lutheran Children’s Hospital. The exchange of light beams shows support during the holiday season.
The event will take place on Thursday, Dec. 17. Starting at 8 p.m., vehicles drive past Mad Anthonys Children’s Hope House for treats. Vehicles will then be directed to designated parking areas around Lutheran Children’s Hospital/Lutheran Hospital. The light beam exchange begins at 8:15 p.m. and ends at 8:30 p.m.
Being hospitalized during the holiday season is a challenge for anyone, especially pediatric patients. Having community members remain inside their parked vehicles and interacting with these young patients reminds them that they are loved and not forgotten, especially during this time of year. A simple gesture that takes just a moment of time means a great deal to patients and their families.
Community members who are interested in attending this event are encouraged to bring a flashlight or use the flashlight feature on their mobile phones. All attendees are to remain inside their vehicles.
