Holiday Memorial Service and Tree Lighting

The holiday season presents a unique opportunity to honor a friend or memorialize a departed loved one with a symbolic light glowing brightly on our Holiday Memorial Tree.

Your tax-deductible gift will not only place a ceremonial light on the tree but will help fund our services for terminally ill patients and compassionate support for their families.

For each gift, acknowledgments will be sent to you and the family of the person(s) being remembered.

Please join us for our 37th annual Holiday Memorial Service and Tree Lighting Nov. 20, 2022, at 5 p.m. at the Baker Street Train Station, 221 W. Baker St., in downtown Fort Wayne. Attendees will receive a small ornament to commemorate this special event. Please RSVP to reserve your seat and ornament.

Please reserve your memorial light by November 1.

  • $35 for one light on the Memorial Tree
  • $60 for two lights on the Memorial Tree
  • $100 for one light on the Memorial Tree and the engraving 
of the person’s name in the Memorial Tree Book
  • $1,000 for a Perpetuity Gift (Your loved one will be remembered every year with a light and the engraving of his or her name in 
the Memorial Tree Book.)
