Contra Costa Tree of Lights celebrations go virtual in 2020
Contra Costa County, California – This year Hospice East Bay celebrates the 34th annual Tree of Lights. These tree lighting ceremonies have provided a way for families and friends to honor their loved ones. Families can find solace in the symbolism of light as the names of their loved ones are read.
The funds raised by these ceremonies make it possible to provide hospice care to patients not covered by insurance. Your support also helps fund additional services, such as music therapy and children’s grief programs.
This year Hospice East Bay will offer the ceremonies virtually to follow state-mandated guidelines. Hopefully, you will have the opportunity to join the ‘virtual’ tree lighting and gather with others to remember or honor a special person.
Note: Some locations may allow guests to congregate safely with social distancing guidelines. Check the event website for more details.
