Light Up A Life 2020

Our 35th Annual Light Up a Life community tree lighting and remembrance ceremony was held virtually this year! The lights on the trees in Downtown Petaluma’s Walnut Park and Healdsburg Plaza are now shining brightly in honor and in memory of our loved ones.

We invite you to watch a recording of our Livestream event, which was held on Friday, December 4th. You can still make a donation to name and acknowledge your loved ones by contacting us at 707-778-6242.

We are so grateful to those that joined us virtually and chose to honor their loved ones with a gift to our Hospice programs this year.

Wishing you peace this Holiday Season.
