You won’t want to miss the Light Up A Life memorial ceremony (7 pm Thursday, Dec. 12) in the Registration Lobby at the hospital. Besides being an important fundraiser for hospice, the evening will include some great entertainment (for free).
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.
About the Threshold Choir
The Threshold Choir is a network of cappella choirs that sing for – and with – those at the threshold of life.
Threshold singers share a repertoire of beautiful, meaningful, soothing songs and a desire to provide comfort and peace at a significant and challenging stage of life. Founded in 2000, there are more than 100 choirs worldwide, bringing singers, when invited, to bedsides each offering a unique blend of gentle musical services to fellow travelers in private homes, hospitals, hospice settings and beyond.
What is Light Up a Life?
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, 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.
