Lights of Love firsts

  • Lights of Love in 1983 was the first public fundraising event in the 72-year history of Phoebe.
  • Approximately 1,200 lights were used to decorate the first 30-foot, Australian pine tree.
  • Mrs. Sheila Harvin, of Enterprise, Ala., an oncology patient, was the first tree lighter.
  • More than $16,800 was contributed at the first tree lighting ceremony.

Since its inception, Lights of Love donations have surpassed the $1 million mark, providing special services and amenities to cancer patients and their families right here in our own community.
