Love Lights donations grow

WITC-Ashland Campus Administrator Steve Bitzer, Alumni Association members Roxanne Lusua and Bambi Pattermann read the names of honored loved ones at the 21st annual Love Lights.

(12/8/11):The 21st annual Love Lights was a glowing success. Sponsored by the WITC-Ashland Alumni Association, Love Lights helps to raise scholarship funds for Wisconsin Indianhead Technical College students. The event honored close to 400 individuals and raised more than $2,280, an increase of more than $300 compared to last year.

“During each of its 21 years, Love Lights has grown,” said Robyn Lulich, college advancement associate. “For some families, Love Lights has become part of their holiday traditions. It’s a great way to honor a loved one and support a worthy cause."

 For the last 21 years, the WITC-Ashland Alumni Association has sponsored Love Lights, an event that raised funds for scholarships while honoring loved ones. Lights are sold to honor those who are deceased, living or serving in the military. The Love Lights tree remains lit outside the Ashland Campus throughout the holiday season.

 Those who braved the cold at the December 7 ceremony honored their loved ones through the reading of their names. Attendees were also treated to a performance by the Accidentals Choral Group and enjoyed holiday refreshments.
