Tree-Lighting Ceremony is November 17

WISCONSIN RAPIDS, WI (OnFocus) – Aspirus Riverview Foundation’s annual Lights of Love fundraiser is a meaningful and beautiful way to remember or honor those dear to us during the holiday season.

A community tradition since 2001, Lights of Love celebrates our loved ones through the purchase of lights in their memory or honor. All proceeds are used by Aspirus Riverview Foundation to support initiatives focused on our community’s greatest health needs, including substance abuse, behavioral health, food systems and cancer.

For $3 each, anyone may purchase a Light of Love. There are also opportunities to donate $25 (silver level) or $100+ (gold level) in memory or honor of someone special. Businesses and organizations are also invited to be a Lights of Love sponsor.

Lights of Love may be purchased year-round and shine throughout the holiday season on the Lights of Love tree on the north side of Aspirus Riverview Hospital directly across from the emergency entrance. Order forms are available at or by leaving a message with the Aspirus Riverview Foundation at 715.421.7488.

Lights of Love Tree Lighting
The 21st annual Lights of Love tree lighting ceremony will begin at 5:30 pm on Thursday, November 17.

Rather than gathering in person, this year’s ceremony will take place via radio broadcast on WFHR 1320 AM or 97.5 FM, enabling everyone to listen from the comfort of their home or vehicle. Those who wish to gather near the tree or watch the tree lighting from their vehicle in the Aspirus Riverview Hospital parking lot (Lot 4) are welcome.
