For the safety of our patients, campus and community at a time of sharply rising COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations, Roswell Park's Tree of Hope 2021 event will now be an all-virtual and televised event.

Celebrate the start of the holiday season with our virtual Tree of Hope celebration on Friday, December 10. Watch live coverage of the event on Channel 2 WGRZ-TV and from 4:00 – 6:30 p.m.

Luminaries of Hope Contest 2021

From Nov 29 - Dec 10, luminary gift bags will be available to patients, visitors and employees of Roswell Park for a donation of $5 to cancer research. Each bag contains a luminary, tea light candle and an official Tree of Hope mask.

Patients are then encouraged to participate in the Luminaries of Hope contest! Decorate your luminary and describe why your design is special to you! Our winner will be chosen based on their luminary presentation and what it symbolizes to them and will receive an iPad Pro!

Enter the Luminaries of Hope Contest!

Since Santa & Mrs. Claus won’t be attending our Tree of Hope Celebration, they wanted to make sure they could still visit with children virtually! Spots are limited, so register soon!
