Each year a family is asked to attend the lighting ceremony to remember their loved ones and light the tree. This year, Cora Roth joined the event and plugged the tree in memory of her husband, Fred. Fred received care through UPMC Cole’s Palliative and Hospice Services. Emily Lynch, PA-C in Cole's Palliative Care program, spoke on the program and the rewarding work she does each day.
This event brought in over $17,000 in donations.
