Hospice By The Bay's annual Lights of Remembrance candle-and tree-lighting ceremony is 27-year-old tradition to honor lost loved ones. This year’s event will take place on Sunday, Dec. 2, at 6 p.m. at the Hospice tree in the southwest quadrant of the Sonoma Plaza.
All ages are invited to attend this community gathering to honor loved ones who have been lights in their lives. The program includes a sharing of inspiring messages, music and reflection before the Hospice tree is lit by a local family (see a spotlight on that family in Friday’s Index-Tribune).
Community members are invited to sponsor a light on the Hospice tree, as a tribute to a special person in their lives or in memory of someone who has died, by making a tax-deductible donation to Hospice By The Bay. The lights are a symbolic gesture of love and memory to be shared with the entire Sonoma community. Contributions allow Hospice By The Bay to provide compassionate services throughout the year to those in need.
To sponsor a light, or for information about the Lights of Rememberence, call Hospice By The Bay at 415-526-5500, or visit hbtb.org.
