Redwood Area Hospital Hospice program will be raising funds through sales of a Willow Tree Angel ornament. This year’s ornament, “Remembrance”, is the tenth in the series and will be available for $20 at Connie’s Hallmark in Redwood Falls and special events through the 2016 Christmas holiday season. Proceeds of the ornament purchase go directly to the hospital’s hospice program.
“We are so thankful for the success of this fundraiser and all it does to support our hospice program,” said Amy Wendinger, Redwood Area Hospital Hospice manager. “Last year our ornament sold out without enough time to restock, so we encourage early shopping this season so you can get the ornament for their collection.”
When an ornament is purchased at Connie’s Hallmark, customers hang a card remembering their loved ones on a special tree in the store.
Ornaments will also be sold at area holiday events, including Lamberton’s “Taste of the Season” event on November 25th and Sanborn’s “Hometown Christmas” event on December 3rd.
