Since 1991 Hospice Savannah has held an annual fundraiser called “Tree of Light” to benefit the bereavement programs of Full Circle, a Center for Education and Grief Support. Full Circle provides services to anyone in our community who has experienced a loss by death.
The fundraiser culminates with a contemplative memorial gathering honoring the legacies of those friends and family members who have died. Held outdoors on the first Sunday in December, it is a special time to remember loved ones during the busy and sometimes stressful holiday season.
The 24th Annual Tree of Light Ceremony
was held on Sunday, December 6, 2015 on the patio of Full Circle and featured music by the Rev. Billy Hester of Asbury UMC and harp by Coastal Harp’s Leslie Adair. Our guest speaker was community and Full Circle volunteer, Marcia Berens. While our event is over, it is not too late to make a gift in memory of your loved one:Click here for the Tree of Light donation form.
