Tree Of Love Tree Lighting Ceremony

In 2011, the Ascension Borgess-Lee Foundation launched the first Borgess Tree of Love program in Cass County. Since then, the community donations to this campaign have assisted hundreds of low-income women without health insurance in receiving free mammograms and diagnostic mammography services at Borgess-Lee Memorial Hospital. Last year's campaign reached over $21,000 in total donations and was proudly supported by 100 area donors.

Every $8 donation to the Tree of Love campaign will help a woman receive a mammogram, as well as allow donors to honor or remember someone important in their lives. Every $80 donation will sponsor a mammogram for a woman and allow donors to honor or remember up to 10 people.

The 2023 Tree of Love campaign will begin in October and run through December. The annual tree lighting event will take place on Wednesday, November 29, 2023, at 5:30 p.m. in Farr Park next to the hospital.
