This holiday season, participate in something truly magical with a gift to Bethell Hospice Foundation’s Celebration of Light & Love.
The tree lighting ceremony and reception will take place at Bethell Hospice on Thursday, December 8. Guests are invited to gather at the Inglewood Community Centre at 7:00 p.m. and participate in the candlelit procession to the doors of Bethell Hospice to light the trees at 7:15 p.m.
The procession will be accompanied by the Young at Heart singers and musicians from Orangeville, and names will be read aloud by Bethell Hospice volunteer, Stan Cameron.
The annual Tree Lighting event brings together people from throughout the community in support of this valuable community resource.
With each Light & Love donation, Bethell Hospice Foundation will illuminate a light on their tree. Every light on the tree represents a life – and memories that will live on forever. Each gift may be made in memory of a family member or friend, and all those remembered are honoured at a candlelit tree lighting, with their names read aloud at the ceremony.
While many of those remembered are individuals whose lives have been directly touched by Bethell Hospice, many members of the community also take the opportunity to remember special people in their lives. Each Light & Love participant makes a real difference and helps to welcome the holiday season in a very meaningful way.
Last year, over $225,000 was raised during the Celebration of Light & Love, and more than 400 individuals were honoured at the beautiful tree lighting ceremony.
To honour a special person in your life, or to make a general gift, call the Fundraising Office at 905-838-3534 or donate to Light & Love online at foundation.bethellhospice.org.
