St. Paul aims to brighten your night

Lights of Hope will come out tomorrow

Tomorrow night, St. Paul's Hospital will continue the annual tradition of turning on the Lights of Hope display at their location on Burrard Street.

Everyone is invited to this year's lighting ceremony beginning at 6:40, which will also include fireworks.

Volunteers built the display using donated materials (including 10 km of lights) and it will be lit every evening until January 9, 2012.

For the past 14 years, the Lights of Hope campaign has lit the exterior of the hospital with a stunning display to inspire community support for care, research, and teaching at St. Paul's.

This year, the campaign hopes to raise $1.9 million for equipment, research, and enhanced patient care at St. Paul’s. Donations can be made by calling 604-662-HOPE or visiting
