The Boyne Eta Nu Charities annual “Lights of Love” tree lighting remembrance ceremony will take place Wednesday, December 4, at 6:30 p.m. on the Dilworth Hotel porch in Boyne City. This special event offers an opportunity for community members to honor and remember loved ones during the holiday season and raise money for Northwest Michigan Hospice Assist. NMHA is a non-medical hospice service specializing in helping caregivers and our communities through building awareness, volunteer training and grief support for those facing illness and loss in Antrim, Charlevoix, Emmet and Otsego Counties. In the past thirty-two years, Boyne Eta Nu has raised over $107,000 for the hospice mission.
You can help decorate our Lights of Love tree by purchasing a green, blue, red or gold light ranging from $5 to $30. For a $40 contribution, you will receive a personalized “heart of love” with the name of your loved one written in white that will hang on the tree during the month of December and be sent to the purchaser for household display from then on. One hundred percent of the monies collected will go to the Hospice Assist program. We will accept donations through the end of December and distribute the personalized hearts after the New Year.
Lights of Love flyers with donation information for lights, hearts or reserving a spot for our post ceremony dinner are available at the Boyne City Chamber and the Northwest Michigan Hospice Assist office at 220 West Garfield, Charlevoix. Those wishing to make direct contributions may do so via mail to Pati Scott, 4408 E. Fontenoy, Boyne City, MI 49712. Donations are tax deductible and accepted through the end of this year. Please make checks payable to Boyne Eta Nu Charities.
