Celebration of Life

Wednesday December 6th, 2023

Please join Ray of Hope for dinner and a celebration of your loved one. Ray of Hope is hosting a Celebration of Life Event that will be held at Giannilliโ€™s II Restaurant in Greenburg, Wednesday December 6th, 2023 from 6PM-9PM. This event is dedicated to those who have lost loved ones to suicide and to honor the lives we have lost.

We know that the holidays are particularly difficult for those experiencing the loss of a loved one to suicide. Ray of Hope feels a deep sense of responsibility to the loss survivors in Westmoreland County. This event is intended to bring comfort to families, as well as provide a way to celebrate the lives of those lost.

Please plan to bring a photo of your loved one to the event. Be sure to write 2-3 sentences about your loved one. This will be incorporated into the evening’s celebration.
