The Tree of Lights

The Tree of Lights is a spectacular tree trimmed with hundreds of white lights and candles. Each light and candle represents a thoughtful donation made in memory or honor of someone special.

If you wish, an acknowledgment of your remembrance will be sent to those you've honored and to the families of those you've memorialized. Their names will also be registered in the Tree of Lights Log which will be displayed next to the tree.

$5 lights and $25 candles may be purchased and donations to Friends of Cranberry Hospice will be welcome. Your tax-deductible donation to the Festival of Trees benefits Cranberry Hospice’s Children’s Bereavement Program as well as Direct Patient Care.
