Scripps Hospice Holiday Tree-Lighting Event

Family members and friends of current and former hospice care patients were invited to honor their loved ones during the third annual Light up a Life tree-lighting and fundraising event held Dec. 13 at the Fairmont Grand Del Mar.

At the event, people who donated $100 received a candle votive with the name of a loved one that they could place on a 9-foot holiday tree. Those who donated $1,000 received a commemorative ornament and the opportunity to include a photo in a looping slide presentation along with a brief message. Donations of $2,500, $5,000 and $10,000 were also accepted with additional opportunities to honor loved ones at the event.

Proceeds will benefit Scripps Hospice, which provides comprehensive care to patients with a serious, life-limiting illness and emotional, social and spiritual support for their family members.
