Find ‘Unity in the Community’ While Celebrating Loved Ones at Light Up A Life Ceremony in Carpinteria

Hospice of Santa Barbara encourages you to join your friends and neighbors in Downtown Carpinteria for a night of ‘Unity in the Community.’

Due to the devastating impact of the Thomas Fire, several lives in the Carpinteria community have been drastically changed. But on Friday, Jan. 5, we urge everyone to demonstrate their solidarity and show how #CarpStrong we are as we recover from the fire.

Hospice of Santa Barbara looks forward to joining the community to celebrate and honor the lives of their loved ones at its annual Light Up A Life ceremony at 5:30 p.m. at the Seal Fountain at Linden Plaza, Linden Avenue.

The Light Up A Life ceremony is scheduled to feature special speakers and guests, delicious hot cocoa and cookies for all, live entertainment, and the lighting of a memorial tree. Stars are available online for a suggested donation of $15 or more and can also be purchased on site for those who wish to personalize a star to hang on the tree. All proceeds will benefit Hospice of Santa Barbara. We hope you will join us for this heartwarming community event.

Immediately following the Light Up A Life celebration at Seal Fountain, please join us for a Heroes Ceremony where we will recognize our local heroes who have been working tirelessly to keep our beautiful city safe during the Thomas Fire.

End the night by coming to the Carpinteria Art Center from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. for beer, wine, and live entertainment.

Throughout the event, attendees will also have the opportunity to support local businesses, who will be open for extended hours.

All funds raised from this event will benefit those who have been affected by the Thomas Fire.  

Hospice of Santa Barbara provides professional counseling, support groups, and patient care services free of charge to individuals and families who are grieving the death of a loved one or experiencing the impact of a serious illness. Hospice of Santa Barbara is also present on eight local junior and high school campuses to work with children and teens who are grieving the loss of a loved one.
