Join Us

We are delighted to extend an invitation to you, your family, and friends for our reimagined 32nd Annual Memorial Illumination. In this season of peace, our purpose is connection with our community through the Memorial Illumination – making for a uniquely special event symbolic of healing and remembrance.

To celebrate the lives of those you’d like to honor and remember, you may contribute $20 or more to sponsor a Light. For every Light you sponsor, a tribute card can be sent to you to let family and friends know about the Light given in their loved one’s name.

Your contributions support us in our work to provide compassionate end-of-life care and comprehensive grief services to our community – bringing peace and resolution to our neighbors and purpose and meaning to our mission. We hope you will help us remember and honor loved ones during this year’s Memorial Illumination. Thank you for your support.
