34th Annual Trees of Life Tree Lighting Ceremony

Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum (south lawn)
215 South Tejon St.
Colorado Springs, CO 80903

Come honor loved ones at our 34th annual Trees of Life outdoor community tree lighting ceremony.  Loved ones' names provided at the event will be read in remembrance. Numerous trees will be illuminated with white lights to honor loved ones. We will also pay tribute to our military and local community protectors as we illuminate a special red, white, and blue tree in their honor. Enjoy local musical talents and complimentary refreshments as we honor loved ones and celebrate community spirit.    

In collaboration with the Downtown Partnership of Colorado Springs, PPHPC is offering sponsorships for 29 six-foot pre-lit artificial trees on Tejon Street. All dollars raised help provide hospice and palliative care to those in our community. 

As Pikes Peak Hospice & Palliative Care reflects on 38 years of service to – and partnership with – our community, we celebrate almost four decades of amazing work and offer a profound “thank you” to everyone involved. We look forward, and renew our commitment and promise of care to our community for many more decades.

We invite you to remember someone special during Pikes Peak Hospice & Palliative Care's Trees of Life.
