Hospice of the East Bay invites the public to participate in its 23rd annual Tree of Lights ceremonies to be held in 15 locations throughout Contra Costa in November and December. Each light on every tree is symbolic of a life and will shine in honor or memory of a beloved 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 lights up.
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 Hospice of the East Bay at (925) 887-5678. Please note which tree you choose to buy a light for, and the name of the person being remembered or honored.
