This is the season of love, light, laughter, and lasting memories. It is also a time of honoring those we have lost. We invite you to honor those memories as well as the caregivers that have made an impact on loved ones and community with Love Lights. For over two decades, Friends of UW Health has hosted Love Lights as a way for families to remember cherished loved ones by illuminating the entrance of University Hospital with holiday lights, reminding us of the lives that are touched every day by UW Health. 

We invite you to participate in Love Lights, an annual program to honor and support the ones we love during the holiday season. To make a donation in honor of your loved one or pay tribute to a special person in your life, visit give.wiscmedicine.org/lovelights. Proceeds benefit patients and families at UW Health.

The names of the honorees will be listed here starting January 2024. To have the name of your loved one included in the display, make your honorary or memorial gift to Love Lights by December 31, 2023.
