33rd Annual Tree of Light Ceremony

You are warmly invited to Hospice Savannah’s 33rd annual Tree of Light memorial ceremony,

honoring the memory of your loved ones during the holiday season.

Join us on Sunday, December 8, 2024 at 5:15pm

at the

Demere Center for Living

6000 Business Center Drive, Savannah, GA  31405

For those who were unable to attend in-person, click here to go to the recording or view the video below.


Plan to join us as our Full Circle Grief & Loss Center grief counselors provide rituals, music, and healing tools to comfort you and your loved ones. Tree of Light supports anyone in the community dealing with the death of a loved one, from any illness or cause, even those who weren’t Hospice Savannah patients.

Make your donation securely here  – being  sure to designate Tree of Light for your gift (on line 3)

The names of those recognized with a donation in their memory will be read during the forty-five minute gathering and will be displayed on our website. Additionally, people can be remembered in our printed program, if a donation is received by Noon on Tuesday, Nov. 21, 2023.

As always, we are indebted to many generous corporate sponsors. Sponsorships and donations allow our Full Circle bereavement counselors to continue offering grief support to any child, teen, or adult in our community at no cost. All donors receive a commemorative ornament and donors who make gifts of $1,000 or above will be contacted by the Foundation to place a brass leaf on the Tree of Remembrance at the Hospice In-Patient Unit or at the Demere Center for Living.

Because of your generosity, no one needs to face loss alone.

Special Thanks to Our Sponsors
