Tree of Angels Event to Be Held Dec. 2 at Aurora Zilber Hospice

Monday, December 01, 2008

Milwaukee, Wis. -- The Aurora Visiting Nurse Association of Wisconsin will hold its fourth annual Tree of Angels Celebration at 6 p.m. Dec. 2 at the Aurora VNA Zilber Family Hospice.

Angels bearing the names of loved ones will be hung on evergreen trees in front of the hospice residence, 1155 Honey Creek Pkwy, Wauwatosa, and will remain there through Jan. 15.

Each angel costs $25 to purchase. Proceeds benefit the VNA's hospice program, through which patients are provided high quality, compassionate care in their homes throughout eastern Wisconsin and at the Aurora VNA Zilber Family Hospice residence. The event also helps continue the VNA's tradition of providing hospice care in eastern Wisconsin even for those who cannot afford it.

The evening will feature refreshments, harp music and an invocation from the hospice's chaplain.

"The Tree of Angels has become a special way to pay tribute to those who have touched our lives," said Dawn Klockow, director of clinical services for the VNA. "We invite anyone who is interested in our hospice program or who would like to honor a loved one to contact us and to attend this beautiful and touching event."

For more information, please call Aurora VNA's Philanthropy Office at 414-328-4441.
