Brighten the Sky by Honoring the Life of Someone you Love

The Hospice Tree of Lights ceremonies have provided a way for families and friends to honor their loved ones. People who attend a ceremony find solace in the symbolism of an illuminated light as the names of their loved ones are read. These ceremonies help raise the funds necessary to provide care to everyone who needs it.

By dedicating a memorial light for a minimum of $30 or becoming a tree donor, you can memorialize a loved one who has passed or honor someone who is living while directly supporting Hospice of the East Bay.

Lights dedicated by gifts of at least $30 will provide the option to memorialize/honor loved ones in the book of names and have their name(s) read at the tree lighting ceremony of choice.

Please purchase your Memorial Light at least 7 days in advance of the event you wish to attend to ensure your loved one's name is read. Puchase online at To ensure that more of your gift goes towards patients and programs, Hospice will not be mailing acknowledgments via the post office. The notification you receive as an email will serve as your receipt and acknowledgement.
