Scripps Health Foundation presents ‘Light Up a Life’


Family members and friends of current and former hospice care patients were invited to honor their loved ones during the Scripps Health Foundation’s second annual Light Up a Life tree-lighting event Dec. 10.

The fundraising event was held in the Capella at The Grand Del Mar.

At the event, people who donated $100 received a candle votive to hang on a 9-foot holiday tree in memory of their loved one. Those who donated $1,000 were given the opportunity to include a photo in a looping slide presentation along with a message.

Proceeds from the event 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. Visit
