The annual Light up a Life event will take place on Wednesday, Dec. 13, from 6 – 7:30 p.m.

Barton Health Hospice will host its annual Light up a Life event on Wednesday, Dec. 13.

The nondenominational ceremony, which celebrates the memory of loved one who have died, will take place in the North Room at Edgewood Tahoe Resort. Light refreshments will be served.

Hospice staff will share readings and a remembrance message, according to a press release from Barton. Attendees will have the opportunity to reflect and acknowledge those who have died. The event will culminate with the lighting of a tree decorated with photo ornaments honoring hospice patients lost this year.

Community members who are unable to attend but would like to share an honoree can provide their loved one's name to Barton prior to the event, and staff will read out loud that person's name.

For more information or to share an honoree, call hospice at 530-543-5581 or email tbruess@bartonhealth.org.
