Join MCCG for Its Annual Holiday Tree Lighting Ceremony

Join MCCG for Its Annual Holiday Tree Lighting Ceremony
Family-Friendly Event Planned in Conjunction with First Friday

MACON, GA (Thursday, December 6, 2012) – Please join The Medical Center of Central Georgia (MCCG) on Friday, December 7 for an annual holiday tradition, the lighting of The Children's Tree. Ykeyvion Wilson, a five year old from Lizella, Ga. and a patient at The Children's Hospital, will light the tree in honor of all of the children at The Children's Hospital.
Festivities will begin in MCCG's Albert Luce, Jr. Heart Institute lobby at 6:00 p.m. when Dr. Ninfa Saunders, CEO of Central Georgia Health System and MCCG, will welcome guests and introduce the musical entertainment, the Mercer University Children's Choir. Representatives from Kohl's department store, through the Kohl's Cares® cause merchandise program, will present a donation of $52,289.00 to The Children's Hospital.
Since 2006, the Kohl's Cares® program has generously given $257,842 to The Children's Hospital. This has enabled the establishment and growth of the Kohl's Cares For Kids® Safety Zone program, which promotes childhood safety awareness and education, as the leading cause of death for children under the age of 14 is accidental injury.
Kohl's Kids Safety Zone program will also provide giveaways to children who attend the tree lighting ceremony, including information about safety awareness. Through the Kohl's Cares® cause merchandise program, Kohl's sells $5 books and plush toys and 100 percent of net profit benefits children's health and education programs nationwide, including hospital partnerships like this one. Kohl's has raised more than $150 million dollars through this program.
The Albert Luce, Jr. Heart Institute at MCCG is located at the corner of First and Hemlock Streets. Those attending the event may park in MCCG's Orange Parking Deck or on the street at no charge.
