Imagine thousands of luminarias glowing at twilight, each light representing someone who has brought love, laughter and light into our lives – a friend, family member, neighbor, or co-worker.

In celebration of Willamette Valley Hospice’s 40th year of caring for neighbors in our community, 24,000 glowing luminarias will honor and remember each of them.
