Greenwich Hospital’s annual Tree of Light celebration will take place on Monday, December 7 at 5 pm in the hospital’s Noble Conference Center followed by a tree lighting on the Sanna and Victor Borge Terrace.

This yearly event features readings, music and a sparkling evergreen tree with hundreds of lights donated in honor or in memory of a loved one. This nondenominational event is free and open to the entire community.

Each tax-deductible contribution supports Greenwich Hospital’s Home Hospice Program, which provides compassionate end-of-life care, regardless of a person’s ability to pay.

The names of every person remembered will be entered into the Annual Book of Honor, which is on permanent display at Greenwich Library.
