PATRONS | Spring 2018 38 In honor of National Hospice and Palliative Care Month, Torrance Memorial Hospice hosted its 22nd annual "Light Up a Life" event on Sunday, November 12. The tree lighting ceremony and fundraiser was an opportunity for people to commemorate and celebrate the lives of lost loved ones. Throughout the holiday season, names of honorees inscribed on a scroll of remembrance remain on display alongside the tree, in the hospital's West Tower lobby. Los Cancioneros Master Chorale and members of the Palos Verdes Peninsula High School Symphonic Orchestra performed for the occasion. Funds raised from the event fund the Hospice programs at Torrance Memorial Medical Center and help people who are in need of hospice care.
