Kicking off this year’s annual MCDH hospice fundraiser are, left to right, Hospice Coordinator Arlene Case, R.N. and volunteers Jacque Moore, Heidi Olson, Junice Wilson, R.N, Betty Adams and Monte Moore. Donations from the sale of stars for the Honor and Memory Trees help fund the hospice program.

Each year, the hospital hosts the Light Up a Life fundraiser in support of our hospice program.

For $25, the name of a loved one, or beloved pet, will be written on a silver star and placed on one of several “memory trees” in the lobby. Stars may be purchased at the ceremony (details below), by mail (700 River Road, Fort Bragg), online (MCDH.Org/light) or by calling 961-4617.

You can also buy a star  to honor someone special in your life. Their name will be added to the Honor Tree.

The official memorial ceremony honoring the people and pets with stars will be held on Thursday, December the 12th, at 7 pm in the hospital Registration Lobby.

The ceremony will feature the Glorianna Carolers and the Threshold Choir, with the reciting of the names on the trees, accompanied by Roberta Belson on the harp. The event ends with the lighting of the trees.
