Light Up 2021 Begins

The “Circle of Hope” (Parkland County) was officially illuminated on Tuesday, November 9 as one of the five symbols of the Light Up Your Life Campaign which runs from Nov. 1-Dec. 31. Donations boxes are at several business locations or you may donate online at www.lightupyourlifesociety.org. The lights on the Murals (Stony Plain), Dove of Hope (Spruce Grove), Tree of Hope (Wabamun) and the Wave of Hope (Seba Beach) symbolize and honour the memories of our loved ones. Thank you for your continuing support of palliative/hospice and continuing care in the Tri-Community area as we celebrate this, our 30th Annual Fundraising Campaign. Thank you for helping us reach our 2021 goal of $75,000.

New for 2021: our Online Silent Auction!

Sorrentino’s Stony Plain Garlic Fest

Last year, Sorrentino’s in Stony Plain planned to raise funds, through their annual Big Garlic Night, for the Light Up Your Life Society and, unfortunately this event was cancelled due to the pandemic.  

Light Up Your Life Society has been selected, again this year, to be the recipient of the 2021 funds raised by raffle tickets sold on a child’s playhouse.  The structure is amazing with a slide, cupboards, upper deck, ability to hook up to a garden hose for running water in the sink plus many other great features.  Any child’s dream playhouse.  The prize includes the delivery of the playhouse within the Edmonton area.  During the month of April, tickets will be on sale for the playhouse valued at $8,000.

Tickets are $20 each or 3 for $50.  The draw will be held ‘live’ on Facebook, Sunday, May 2, 2021, at 3:00 p.m. Tickets will be available from any Light Up executive member, or by calling Linda at 780- 963- 5691.

The picture above will give you an idea of the structure.  If you would like a first-hand look, it is located next to Sorrentino’s in Stony Plain.

Thank you for your support of this raffle!

2020 Fundraising Campaign Results

It’s official! The Light Up Your Life Society raised $90,638 in our 2020 Campaign. Our goal was $60,000 which felt a little like wishful thinking during these unusual times. It is an undeniable testament to the generosity and loyalty of our supporters to realize that we could exceed that goal by over 50%. It is with the most sincere gratitude that we acknowledge your unwavering generosity in support of palliative, hospice and continuing care in the Tri-Community area. As a volunteer-run organization we are proud of the fact that 97% of all money raised is used to directly benefit those in need. And we are delighted to say that funds to support all current requests ($71,024) have already been disbursed. In 2022 we will celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the LUYL Society. Thank you ALL for partnering with us and supporting our efforts during all those years!
