Tree of Hope

The Alzheimer’s Association Southeastern Virginia Chapter is pleased to announce the installation of a sculptured “Tree of Hope” in the chapter office located at 6350 Center Drive in Norfolk, VA. The Tree represents a breathtaking welcome to the office while offering families the opportunity to forever honor and remember loved ones, and express their hopes for a cure.

As an elegant focal point upon entering, the Tree of Hope features individually mounted gold, silver and bronze leaves, two sizes of bronze stones with a brass plate for engraving, and a sculpted cast bronze base with a dedication stone. A separate dedication plaque completes the wall where the tree is housed.

All of these beautiful pieces, either on the tree or scattered beneath it, can be inscribed with words that pay tribute to a loved one. Leaves, depending on color, represent gifts of $300-$500. Stones beneath the tree represent gifts of $1,500 and $2,000 depending on size. The tree trunk with dedication stone (SOLD) and the separate "Tree of Hope" wall dedication plaque individually represent larger gifts.


The Tree of Hope offers a comforting presence and a perpetual message of love, appreciation and remembrance. For more information please contact Gino Colombara our Executive Director in the Chapter office at 757.459.2405.

The base of the Tree of Hope is dedicated to the chapter’s most dedicated advocate and strongest voice for Alzheimer’s families – Lucille Cartwright. The words inscribed on the dedication plaque perfectly capture the essence of Lucille - a caring woman of passion, dedication, service and vision. Lucille passed away in April; she was 85. Her legacy lives on in what we do everyday as we work towards creating a world without Alzheimer’s.
