Light Up Hospice

Remembering your loved one during the holiday season.

The month of December is a time of year when cherished memories are created through celebrating time honoured traditions at family gatherings.

For many, celebrating the holiday season is a joyous occasion, however for those members in our community who are grieving the loss of a loved one, this time of year can often be very difficult.

We created this beautiful event to give all those who have grieved the loss of a loved one a special way to celebrate the memory of their loved one who has passed. 

Join us and allow your memories to shine brightly by becoming a part of our Light Up Hospice event.

Sponsor an item by "purchasing" it in our online store and receive a tax receipt for your donation. Please allow 3-5 business days to process your order.

Event Details

The Coulson Group and The San Group present Light Up Hospice

Our Light Up Hospice event invites all members of our community to enjoy our spectacular holiday display by visiting us day or night at our AVHS Community Office at 2579 10th Avenue. Our display will be lit up from 9 am – 9 pm daily for the entire month of December. 

You can support the important palliative care services we provide at Ty Watson House and in the community, and the grief & bereavement services we offer, by purchasing a string of decorative lights, a wreath, stars and other beautiful holiday décor items that will be part of the display that adorns the exterior of the community office.
