    ROCHESTER—Cornerstone VNA is pleased to announce the 34th Annual Jane Cooper Fall Lights of Love Celebration, carrying on the event traditionally hosted by the Frisbie Memorial Hospital (FMH) Auxiliary Board. Due to COVID-19, the event will be held virtually on Wednesday, Dec. 2, 2020 at 4:30 p.m. Live-stream event details will be available on cornerstonevna.org/lightsoflove. In addition, a recording of the celebration will be made available to the community afterwards.

    Jane Cooper Fall created this poignant event in 1986 as a way to pay tribute to the people who have had a special impact on our lives. Lights of Love has continued to be an important community event due to the hard work of Jane, Dr. Robert Rubino, and the FMH Auxiliary Board. With each $5 donation, individuals can honor a loved one, whose name will be added to a holiday light at Cornerstone VNA. Hundreds of lights will be strung throughout the beautiful grounds of Cornerstone VNA. Each light shining warmly upon each tribute name throughout the entire holiday season. The last day to reserve your lights is Nov. 22.

    It is with honor and respect that the 2020 Lights of Love event will pay special tribute to: Jane Cooper Fall, Lights of Love Founder, Elizabeth Hart, FMH Volunteer, Jean Hilton, FMH Auxiliary Board Member and Nancy Wyman, FMH Auxiliary Board Member.

    According to Erika Lee, MHA, Director of Advancement at Cornerstone VNA, “We are honored to carry on this wonderful holiday tradition, and despite the current challenges we are facing, we are pleased to provide a special way to still pay tribute to those we love.” Lee adds, “It’s a beautifully creative event this year and I’m excited to see it come together for our community.”
