For the 34th year, the Volunteer Partners of HSHS Sacred Heart Hospital will sponsor the Love-Light Christmas Tree outdoor lighting ceremony at the hospital. This is a unique way for individuals to memorialize a loved one or to honor a relative or friend by making a donation to reserve a light in a loved one’s name.

The lighting ceremony will take place Sunday, December 1, at 5:30 p.m. in the Sacred Heart Hospital Chapel (900 West Clairemont Ave., Eau Claire), with the outdoor tree lighting to follow. Refreshments will be served in the lobby starting at 4:45 p.m. Thousands of loved ones will be represented as lights on the trees in front of the hospital. Each night throughout this Christmas season, the lights will glow in their honor.

All proceeds from this event will support the ministry of The Healing Place, a free grief support center for area residents.

For a donation of $10 per name, you can reserve a light of remembrance or a light in recognition of a loved one:
• WHITE LIGHT — Deceased Adult
• BLUE LIGHT — Deceased Child
• RED/GREEN — Living Relative/Friend
• GOLD LIGHT — Living/Deceased Veterans/Active Military

Lighted tree topper sponsorships are available for donations of $100. Nativity sponsorships are available for donations of $250.

Donations must be received by Noon on November 20 to Volunteer Partners at Sacred Heart Hospital, 900 West Clairemont Ave., Eau Claire, WI 54701. The names of loves ones submitted by the deadline will be listed in a special tribute in the Eau Claire Leader-Telegram on November 30. Submission forms are available in the hospital’s main lobby information desk, cafeteria, family waiting center, cancer center, The Healing Place and volunteer services department. Donations can also be made online at www.sacredhearteauclaire.org/Volunteer/Love-Lights.
