Silver Anniversary “LIGHT-A-LIFE” Bell Benefits Hospice Buffalo Patients


Buffalo, New York -- Hospice Buffalo’s Light-A-Life Bell and Memorial Tree Lighting Ceremony is a special opportunity to remember your loved one during the holidays. The annual Light-A-Life Bell has become a cherished collectible for many families who have lost a loved one. For the past 25 years, an artist in Ashville, North Carolina has been hand-crafting each delicate porcelain Bell, and volunteer “Bell Ladies” have been personally inscribing loved ones’ names inside.

With your gift of $55 or more, you will receive a personalized Bell, and your loved one’s name will be on a Tag-&-Bow on one of 3 huge evergreen trees, as well as a Plaque at CTG on Delaware Avenue for our Memorial Tree Lighting Ceremony on December 7th and throughout the holiday season.

The Light-A-Life Bell will serve as a wonderful remembrance for you or a thoughtful gift for someone you love. To receive your Bell for holiday delivery, please order by December 9th online at or call 716-686-8090. Or, stop by Hospice Buffalo during “Bell Days” on November 20th or December 18th -- have your Bell inscribed while you wait by our Bell Ladies.
