This year’s event includes a video featuring live music, the lighting of the tree and a special surprise from the hospice staff. Plus, each location will have a special program with the reading of the names and a tree lighting. Individual videos will be released after the 6 p.m. event.

“We are sad we can’t host this special event in-person, due to COVID-19—however, we are doing everything possible to make this year’s virtual event look and feel like year’s past.”—Brodie Long, Office Manager at MercyOne North Iowa Hospice.
With a donation of any amount, lights are placed on a Tree of Life and “brought to light” symbolizing the presence of those honored and remembered. Names of those remembered and honored will be listed in an online tree lighting program. Locations include Charles City, Clear Lake, Forest City, Garner, Hampton, Iowa Falls, Lake Mills, Osage and Mason City. In addition, all donors will receive a holiday ornament in the mail.
Lights on the Tree of Life remember, and honor loved ones in a very special way and help extend MercyOne North Iowa Hospice’s services to those affected by end of life. Hospice services include compassionate, specialized care to improve quality of life for the patient and their family.
