Marietta Memorial Health Foundation holds its annual Love Lights Open House Thursday evening.

They came out to see five different Christmas trees with various decorations.

Each light on the trees represents a donation in memory of a loved one

Also on display was the "Book of Honor" which features names of honorees and contributors of the love light trees.

All proceeds will go to the Marietta Home Health and Hospice.

The funds will be used for patients who have unique needs that aren't covered by regular hospice benefits.

"It's a memorial gift and so I really brings up the feelings of losing a loved one and how they touch their heart and that directly correlates with the holiday season and remembering," says Marietta Memorial Executive Director, Daneka Hedges.

The Marietta High School Choir along with Santa, Mrs. Claus and their elf were also in attendance.

People who donated gifts of $100 or more received a beautiful glass Christmas tree ornament made by adults with disabilities at WASCO.
