Love Lights Tree Lighting Ceremony

1pm and 4pm

Health Sciences Learning Center, adjacent to UW Hospital and Clinics (view map)

Each year, the Friends of UW Hospital and Clinics, Inc., offer a special way to honor and remember loved ones through the sale of red and white Love Lights. Nearly 1,700 twinkling lights will be lit up in front of University Hospital to remember and honor loved ones this holiday season.


Families donated $5 for each light or $10 for three to remember or honor a loved one. White lights represent loved ones who are being remembered. Blue lights honor a living person. Families also have the option of having their loved one included in a Love Lights ad that will be published in the Wisconsin State Journal.


The programs and lightings are sponsored by Friends of UW Health. The money raised is used by Friends for grants to support patient and family programs and services at UW Health.
