Can’t attend the event? You can still support Pikes Peak Hospice with your donation. We know you are approached numerous times throughout the year for contributions; we are truly thankful for any contribution you can provide.

Why Support Illuminations?

We believe that hospice care is about living, and that every patient and family deserves consistent expert care and compassionate personal attention. As the only nonprofit, community-based hospice in El Paso and Teller Counties, each and every year, we help more than 2,000 patients and families navigate the challenges of a life-limiting illness with comfort, dignity and fulfillment. We are proud that 100% of net funds raised helps us to provide needed services to our community such as charity care for the uninsured, Veteran services, Sentimental Journeys, patient special needs, pediatric services, grief services, and complementary therapies (pet, music, aromatherapy, and touch).

It is our goal to raise $100,000 to support these programs and services.

Help support Pikes Peak Hospice and shine a light on families facing their end-of-life journey.
