About Our Organization
The Gift of Light provides an opportunity to recognize and honor those who made a difference in your life and allows you to help raise much needed funds for priority medical equipment for our community.
A tree is placed in the lobby of the Cobequid Community Health Centre. When a donation is made to the Gift of Light, we respectfully remember the person the donation is honoring and place a light on the tree. This light in honor or memory of a loved one will shine on through the holiday season. A special note will be sent to the recipient or the recipientís family informing them of the gift.
In tribute of all those remembered a presentation highlighting all the recipients names will be featured at the Gift of Light Tree Lighting Event on December 13th, 2017.
Last year the Cobequid Foundation removed the silent auction from the evening of the tree lighting ceremony and replaced it with an online auction. This year marks the second year for this online auction. The auction allows supporters near and far to participate in this fundraising event. You can support healthcare in your community from the comfort of your home. You will not want to miss the wonderful items we have in store for you this year. The auction opens November 1st, 2017 and closes December 15th, 2017 with new items being added weekly.
