On Saturday there will be a special donation table to accept remembrances or recognitions-only $10 each-on the spot that will be included on the list of names read at the event.
Light Up A Life names are also published in the Santa Paula Times up until Christmas.
The popularity of Light Up A Life is enduring, partly because everyone can briefly share his or her memories of lost loved ones or comment on those living that are honored during the moving-but never maudlin-ceremony.
For more information, or to arrange your donation and twinkling lights, call the Hospice office at 525-1333.
All proceeds of Light Up a Life benefit the nonprofit organization offering an array of always-free services to those with life-limiting illness and their families throughout the Santa Clara River Valley.
