Hospice of Santa Barbara ‘Light Up a Life’ Stars Now Available

Families, friends invited to hang remembrances in honor of loved ones on trees in Santa Barbara, Goleta and Carpinteria

This Dec. 3, 4 and 10, Hospice of Santa Barbara will host its 28th annual holiday Light Up a Life ceremonies in Goleta, Santa Barbara and Carpinteria, respectively, inviting families and friends to celebrate the lives and memories of their loved ones. Hundreds of lights and stars will illuminate memorial trees at the Light Up a Life sites.

Stars may be purchased and personalized in memory of loved ones who have passed or in honor of those who are living. Stars may be hung at the Light Up a Life ceremonies or afterward while the trees are up. A $10 or more donation is suggested for each star, and all proceeds support Hospice of Santa Barbara.

PJ’s Hallmark in Camino Real Marketplace and the Lobero Theatre have graciously offered to sell Light Up a Life stars on site through December. This will be the first time that stars will be available to purchase on site while the memorial trees remain up through the holidays. PJ’s Hallmark sales will be in the store, at 6990 Marketplace Drive, and the Lobero Theatre sales will be out of the box office at 33 E. Canon Perdido. The box office is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and noon to 5 p.m. on Saturday.

Light Up a Life stars are also available at www.hospiceofsantabarbara.org, at the Hospice of Santa Barbara office (2050 Alameda Padre Serra, Suite 100, in Santa Barbara, 805.563.8820), at Corktree Cellars, 910 Linden Ave. in Carpinteria, and Peebee & Jay’s, 1007 Casitas Pass Road in Carpinteria.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
