Hospice Care in Westchester & Putnam will kick off its Tree of Life celebration at Sound Shore Medical Center with a tree lighting ceremony on Tuesday, November 27th, 2012 at 4:30pm. The Hospice Care tree lighting will take place as part of the hospital’s lighting of both the official Sound Shore Medical Center tree as well as the Tree of Lights. Tree of Life will run from November 27th thru December 24th at Sound Shore Medical Center.
The Tree of Life is an annual benefit for Hospice Care in Westchester & Putnam. It captures the solemn spirit of the holiday season and provides people with a wonderful way to remember loved ones in a special way. Individuals may purchase ornamental doves to be inscribed with the name of a loved one, which are then displayed on evergreen trees at the Jefferson Valley Mall for the duration of the holiday season. Doves may be purchased at the event locations or by calling (914) 666-4228 or online at www.vnahv.org.
Hospice Care in Westchester & Putnam would like to extend a special thank you to Dow Chemical, Highland Pork, Peach & McPherson, Putnam Hospital Center and Elder Care Connection.
