2013 Light Up A Life Tree Lighting Event

The annual Light Up A Life Tree Lighting Event was held on Sunday, December 8, 2013 on a clear and crisp evening. Nearly 200 guests and friends of the hospital attended this year's event which featured the Lil’ Dickens Carolers. Hospice Chaplain Janice Brown reflected on the excellent care and vital role that the St. Joseph Hospice program plays in helping families and patients with life limiting illnesses. A special tree blessing was provided by Sister Jeanette Woodward, CSJ and a moving story was shared by Ms. Debbie Tarlow.

The memorable event raised over $40,000 for St. Joseph Hospice, which ensures patients receive the critical support and care needed to enjoy their time with their loved ones.

Thank you to the volunteers who helped the event run smoothly and to the event patrons listed below for their generous contributions.
