MORRISTOWN, NJ - The Visiting Nurse Association of Northern New Jersey celebrated the 6th Annual Celebration of Life Holiday Event on November 19. During the event, the large tree on the corner of James Street and South Street was lit in honor of loved ones who will be missed during the holiday season. 

After the Tree Lighting Ceremony, guests were invited to attend VNA’s holiday fundraiser held inside the agency’s headquarters. Live entertainment was provided by Kevin Gray and the 78 West Jazz Ensemble.  Guests enjoyed wine, hors d’oeuvres and a silent auction with proceeds benefiting the VNA of Northern NJ Foundation. 

“This event has become a wonderful VNA tradition that brings the community together to celebrate family and friends and remember those who are no longer with us,” said CEO Faith F. Scott, FACHE. “It’s one of numerous seasonal activities we undertake each winter.  The holiday season can be a time of sadness and stress, especially for the homebound and those who serve as their caregivers. Our VNA has been lending a helping hand by delivering comfort and encouragement year round for more than 117 years.”
