Trees of Light 2020

While we may have been "socially distanced" from having the gala this year, we still need and appreciate your support with our annual Trees of Light fundraiser. 
We still want to give families the opportunity to remember loved ones this holiday season. Through Memorial Lights and Sponsorships, you not only will be commemorating those you love, but also supporting our programs that make such a difference in our community


Gift lights below for loved ones through the end of the holiday season!

“We lost our dad in June 2020, so now, Mom and Dad can bring light to everyone together”.

Bereaved Daughter & Donor

“I have not been afraid to die, but was afraid about the circumstances of death (like laying in a hospital for 2 months on machines with no say about my wishes. The Hospice of Baton Rouge has changed all of that. I am so fortunate not to have to go through everything I’ve seen my family and friends go through in hospitals. I can’t thank you all enough. Next to Jesus, you are my heroes.”
