The 9th Annual “Light up a Life” offers community members the opportunity to celebrate the life of a loved one during the holiday season. Each donation lights one bulb in memory of one person on our memory tree, located downtown in front of the Johnson Heritage Post. Donation forms are available at area churches, businesses and on the web at Donation forms may may be mailed in or dropped off at the Johnson Heritage Post or the Care Partners Office.

The Tree Lighting Ceremony will be held across the street in the Johnson Heritage Post on Thursday, December 7th at 5:30 pm. Pastor Mark Ditmanson will assist with a short ceremony of reflection and connection. The event is sponsored by Care Partners to support end of life services in Cook County.
