SMHC Auxiliary Tree of Life Ceremonies in Biddeford and Sanford

Biddeford event includes “Wilder Shores” reception for exhibit by YES Art Works
The Southern Maine Health Care (SMHC) Auxiliary has kicked off its annual Tree of Life campaign to support life-saving care at SMHC’s Emergency Departments in Biddeford and Sanford. The Auxiliary has a goal to raise $10,000 to provide SMHC’s clinicians with some of the tools they need to provide direct patient care.

Tree lighting ceremonies will be held on at 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, December 2 at the SMHC Medical Centers in Biddeford and Sanford. Luminaria can be purchased to celebrate, honor or remember someone special. All donations received will be represented by a luminaria bag and read aloud during the ceremonies.

To purchase a luminaria, please contact SMHC’s Development Office at 283-7235.

In Biddeford, the public is also invited to attend a 4:30 p.m. reception for Wilder Shores, an exhibit of abstract expressionist-style paintings based on the work of Cy Twombly, an American painter of large-scale, calligraphic and graffiti-like work. All of the pieces were created by clients of YES Art Works, the studios of Creative Work Systems. This travelling exhibit is being displayed at all MaineHealth members and can be viewed off the lobby of SMHC’s Biddeford Medical Center throughout November and December.
