An evening of light and love

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.

Proceeds from this illumination benefitted Mary Washington Healthcare Hospice Services. Tax ID number is 54-1552324.

2020 Event Sponsors

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.
