Celebration of Life is a free community event. The event features a 2-mile walk, food, and live entertainment leading up to the Lights of Remembrance. Participants can design a luminary in memory of a loved one and enjoy the launch of the lanterns at sunset on the Wailoa River. Proceeds from the Celebration of Life will benefit the patients and families served by Hospice of Hilo. 


Each holiday season since 1990 Hospice of Hilo has presented its hallmark "Light Up A Life" event, offering the public a way to remember loved ones who have passed away.  Every year members of the community are invited to visit one of the Trees of Remembrance-located at the two inside mall entrances of Macy's Prince Kuhio Plaza from the day after Thanksgiving to Christmas Eve-to hang an ornament bearing the name of a friend or family member who has died. Community volunteers are available daily to help you share remembrance and celebrate life.  


The Annual Holiday Dinner & Auction is Hospice of Hilo’s primary fundraiser and has become one of the premier signature events in Hilo.  The event is a fun-filled evening of delightful cuisine, spectacular wines and a fabulous assortment of live and silent auction items. This year's event is sold out. Names are being taken for waitlist only.

The 2017 Dinner & Auction will be held on Monday, December 4th.

For questions, or to donate an item to the 2017 silent auction, please email Lisa Kwee at: lisak@hospiceofhilo.org, or call (808) 969-1733.
