Lights of Love

On December 2nd, 2022, we lit up Sakura House for the third time during our Lights of Love Tribute Celebration!
So far, we have raised close to $65,000, which all goes to Sakura House and will help to ensure we can continue to offer end-of-life care at no cost to those who need it. We are so grateful to everyone who supported this event either through sponsorship, by purchasing a memorial lantern, by watching the livestream, or just generally showing love for hospice care in Oxford County. A special thank you to our Title Sponsor, Toyota Motor Manufacturing Canada and to our Media Sponsor, 104.7 Heart FM.
For those who were not able to view the livestream, it will remain on the VON Sakura House Facebook page and can be watched anytime or shared with others.(See below for a link to the videos.) Thank you to Cody Hayward from 104.7 Heart FM for leading the Tribute Celebration as our emcee. Our speakers that evening were Janine Jackson (Sakura House Manager), Vanessa & Tammy (Hospice and Bereavement Coordinators), Jan (our Family Speaker), and John Goodbun (our Community Corporation President). A special thank you to Jan for sharing such a special recollection of her family members who spent time at Sakura House. Over 250 lanterns glowed bright that evening – each and every one represented a cherished beautiful soul that is loved and missed. Again, thank you to everyone who made this event happening!
