An evening of light and love

Title Sponsor
The Fredericksburg Amateur in Memory of Shelly Decker

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.

Each year, Mary Washington Hospice supports hundreds of individuals and families facing end of life. Our interdisciplinary team provides medical, emotional, and spiritual care for patients and their families, with no additional financial burden for those who are unable to pay.

When you purchase a luminary, you are also supporting our efforts to meet the dynamic bereavement needs of our community. Your donation will assist our team in providing grief camps for children and teenagers, complimentary grief education to mental health professionals across our region, and provide monthly support to hundreds of individuals and families looking for peer support groups.

We humbly ask for your support so we can continue to make a genuine difference in the lives of our patients, their families, and anyone in our community struggling with the loss of a loved one.

Proceeds from this illumination benefit Mary Washington Hospice. Tax ID number is 54-1552324.
