Our Heroes

The Light Up Your Life Tri-Community Palliative/Hospice Care Society is pleased to present the names of our 2023 sponsors, supporters and persons honoured with a donation.  

Thank you so very much!

If you made a donation to the 32nd Annual “Light Up Your Life” Campaign and the name of your loved one is not included in this list, please accept our sincere apology, and call Sharon Cornelius at 780-962-8503. The names will be added to the list on the website. The Light Up Your Life Society is a charitable non-profit, volunteer-run Society which also accepts Gifted and Tribute Donations throughout the year online at: www.lightupyourlifesociety.org

The Light Up Your Life Society extends sincere gratitude to all those who have so generously donated to Community Palliative/Hospice and Continuing Care through this annual, local fundraising campaign. An incredible $144,432.76 was raised.  Amazing!

The equipment/items listed below have been funded for use by palliative/hospice and continuing care clients at WestView Health Centre Continuing Care, WestView Health Centre Hospice, and the Good Samaritan Care Centres in Spruce Grove and Stony Plain:

(1) Three-seater couch and lamps (WestView Health Centre Hospice Family Room); (1) VeloPlus Electric Bike, Sofa Bed; redevelopment of the resident’s garden at George Hennig Place; (9) Geo-Matrix Gel Overlay for mattresses; (2) Ceiling Lifts; Volunteer Training; WestView Hospice Garden annuals, and (1) portable piano (Good Samaritan Care Centre)

The total cost of this support is $61,126.37

The total amount of financial support given to WestView Health Centre Hospice since it opened in July 2014 stands at $305,000. Funds raised in excess of the cost of the above items will be used to fulfill additional equipment or special service requirements as needed, and in particular support for WestView Health Centre Hospice.  With on-going financial assistance from many local businesses, groups, service Clubs, and individuals, the Light Up Your Life Society annual campaign expenses remain remarkably low at 4.9%. We therefore assure our donors that the money raised will directly benefit palliative/hospice and continuing care clients in the Tri-Community area.
