The 8th Annual “Light up a Life” offers community members the opportunity to celebrate the life of a loved one during the holiday season. Each donation lights one bulb in memory of one person on our memory tree, located downtown, next to Drury Lane Books. Lights will be lit as donations come in. Donation forms are available at area churches, businesses and on the link below. 

The Tree Lighting Ceremony will be held at East Bay Suites in their Stone Throw Room on Thursday, December 1st at 6 pm.  Pastor Beth Benson will assist with a short ceremony of reflection and connection. Music will be provided by Ann Russ and Jenny Delfs. The event is sponsored by Care Partners to support end of life services in Cook County.
