Garden of Lights raises money for oncology center

The Howard County General Hospital Volunteer Auxiliary is sponsoring its fifth annual Holiday Garden of Lights to raise money for its oncology services department.

Individuals and organizations may help illuminate the garden by purchasing lights to honor or memorialize friends, co-workers and loved ones.

A contribution of $5 will purchase one light; $100 will illuminate one shrub; and $300 will light a tree.

The lighting ceremony will be at 5 p.m., Dec. 6.

A display in the hospital lobby will list the names of contributors and honorees.
