HOSPICEWITS ANNUAL TREE OF LIGHT CEREMONY 24 NOVEMBER
Bring your family to Joburg Zoo to Shine a Light on Love and Celebrate Life.
HospiceWits will host its annual Tree of Light Ceremony on Sunday, 24th November 2019, at the Johannesburg Zoo. The popular family event raises funds for the treatment of patients with life limiting illness. This is the perfect occasion for family and friends to unite under a canopy of stars, as the sun goes down and the lights on the tree are lit and illuminate our hearts.
Jacqui Kaye, CEO of HospiceWits says ; “Every globe purchased helps HospiceWits provide very special, compassionate care and support to patients with a life threatening illness, in the comfort of their own home. At a time of uncertainty as our team encourages patients to live their life to the fullest, with dignity and free from pain, their families also need counselling and support, including bereavement counselling. Our care is a very special kind of caring. With the support from our partners, families and friends, 2000 globes were lit on the night last year, and this year we hope to increase the number of globes on the tree in memory of someone significantly special. Funds received will enable HospiceWits to continue to make a meaningful difference in the lives of patients who are not in a position to pay for our services”.
Individuals and corporates have the option of purchasing virtual or actual globes. Those purchasing virtual globes can write messages for their loved ones, which will then be shared on the Tree of Light’s website. The physical globes are placed on the Tree during the event, where families and friends bring their blankets and picnic baskets and enjoy a wonderful evening of friendship and delightful entertainment.
Globe options are available at the following prices:
• Corporate globe: R350 each
• Individual globe: R100
Besides globes, there will be a range of small light-up toys available for sale by HospiceWits staff and volunteers. Proceeds of these sales all go to HospiceWits.
