The 9th 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 in front of the Johnson Heritage Post. 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 the Johnson Heritage Post on Thursday, December 7th at 5:30 pm.  It will include a short ceremony of reflection and connection and music. The event is sponsored by Care Partners to support end of life services in Cook County.
