Hospice of the East Bay (formerly Hospice and Palliative Care of Contra Costa) invites the public to participate in its 21st annual Tree of Lights ceremonies to be held in 16 cities throughout Contra Costa in November and December. Every light on each tree is symbolic of a life and will shine in honor or memory of a friend or family member. Please join any of the commemorative ceremonies to enjoy music, poetry, talks by local dignitaries and the special moment when the tree is lit.
A suggested donation of $20 per light can be made by sending a tax-deductible check to Hospice Foundation of the East Bay at 3470 Buskirk Avenue , Pleasant Hill , CA 94523 . Credit card donations may be made by calling Joy at the Foundation office (925) 887-5678. Please note which tree you choose to buy a light for, and the name of the person being remembered or honored. Proceeds from Tree of Lights ceremonies benefit patients and families in the care of Hospice of the East Bay. See dates, times and locations below:
