COVINA, Calif. — A time-honored tradition that continues despite the pandemic, Emanate Health Foundation will host its annual Light Up a Life and Tree-Lighting Event virtually, Dec. 2, at 6 p.m. to pay tribute to the lives of family and friends. To help keep the community safe and healthy, participants can click on emanatehealth.org/LUAL that evening to watch the program.
"While the last 18 months have been a challenge for everyone, let's use the holiday season this year to remember and honor those special people who shared special moments that will always be ingrained in our hearts and minds," said Gilda Dominguez, MS, CCC-SLP, CSSGB, Director of Hospice.
In addition to the Hospice Tree Lighting festivities, this year's Light Up a Life event will recognize Emanate Health Hospice Volunteers who serve collectively as the 2021 Hospice Honoree. These volunteers give of themselves to provide comfort to families and their loved ones at the end of life. Their stories promise to be uplifting and inspiring.
Light Up a Life is open to anyone who would like to remember a loved one in a special and meaningful way by making a donation in their memory. To make your gift online, visit emanatehealth.org/LUAL. To include your loved one's name(s) on the Honor Roll that will be presented during the virtual event, please send in your gift by Monday, November 29. Proceeds will benefit Emanate Health Hospice.
Founded by community leaders in 1987, Emanate Health Hospice is one of the few freestanding hospices in the country. The Hospice offers both an inpatient facility and home-based services to assist patients and families in dealing with the medical, social, psychological and spiritual aspects of a terminal illness. Hospice focuses on maximizing the quality of remaining life and ensuring the dignity of the patient and the family. The Hospice was built and continues to be supported through community donations.
