Crouse Health Foundation Launches 36th Annual Lights of Love Campaign

The holiday season is upon us and with it one of Central New York’s most glowing traditions: the annual Crouse Health Foundation Lights of Love campaign.

Each of the 3,000 lights on the iconic Crouse clocktower are illuminated, representing gifts — given in honor or in memory of someone — that will support the hospital’s ability to provide comprehensive medical services and programs for our community.

This year’s campaign proceeds will benefit the update and repair of the iconic Crouse clocktower itself, a Syracuse landmark that has been lighting the city’s skyline since 1927. The clocktower is in need of structural repairs and restoration including the roof, windows and painting. These needed repairs will allow it to continue to be a beacon of health, hope and healing for decades to come.

“The Crouse clocktower has long been a signal of strength and hope for the communities we serve in Central New York and its preservation is essential,” said Crouse Health Foundation Chair Vincent Spina. “With this restoration, it will continue to serve as a visible reminder of the Crouse mission, vision and values.”

Contributors and community leaders are invited to attend the lighting ceremony and reception on Monday, Nov. 27, from 4:30 – 6 p.m., on the Pomeroy Patient Patio at Crouse Hospital.

Those making the campaign possible this year are:

Tony and Gail Fiorito and Partnership Properties, Inc.
