Past Events

Join us on this international day of giving back.

To celebrate the act of giving and to thank our donors, we are welcoming back Brynn Albanese for a one woman show, streamed live from the community room of Hospice SLO County.

The lantern symbolizes light as we are guided through life’s journey. We use the symbolism of the lantern to represent the light of the individuals who have been special in our lives. The illumination, warmth, and glow provided by the candles giving light to the lanterns symbolize the influence these individuals have had on who we are today.
