Each holiday season, we gather with friends and family. We bring life to
our memories while making new ones. We recall those who have walked this
journey with us, and the impact they have had on our lives.
Celebrate the ones who brought light and love into your life by purchasing
a luminary in memory of a friend or loved one. Proceeds from this illumination

A luminary in honor of your loved one will shine at the Light Up a Life
event, and you are invited to visit the Village at Spotsylvania Towne
Centre between 5:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. to experience the illumination.
Purchase your luminary.
For each luminary purchase:

Title Sponsor: The Fredericksburg Amateur in Memory of Julie Hurst
“Julie Hurst was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer at the young
age of 38 and was told she only had a few short years to live. Once all
treatments were exhausted Julie was sent home to wait to go to heaven
with family, friends and the support of hospice. Words cannot express
what hospice did for Julie and our family during the last weeks of her
life. Hospice made it possible for Julie to spend this time in complete
comfort and peace. I cannot think of a better, more caring organization
to take care of loved ones in their final days before they go to heaven.
They are there for families 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Thank you to
all the employees and volunteers at Mary Washington Hospice for your selfless
support to our community.”
Jon Hurst – Founder, The Fredericksburg Amateur in Memory of Julie Hurst.
Our work is made possible by the dedication of volunteers. Annually, almost
100 individuals donate 3,583 hours of their time by assisting with administrative
efforts, providing in-home care to patients and bereavement support to
their families. A portion of proceeds from Light Up a Life will benefit
the Mary Washington Hospice Volunteer Program.
