VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) – St. Paul’s Hospital will soon look a lot brighter.

The Christmas tradition “Lights of Hope” are being turned on Thursday night.

Broek Bosma with the St. Paul’s Foundation says if you can’t make it downtown, there will be other celebrations you can go to.

“We will actually be lighting up many of the other sites run by Providence Health Care as well, including sites like Mount Saint Joseph Hospital and Holy Family Hospital.”

Thursday’s event at St. Paul’s starts at 6 p.m., and will include turning on the lights, Christmas carols, and fireworks.

Lights of Hope is a fundraiser, now in its 22nd year, which helps pay for equipment, research, and services for patients.
