37th Annual Tree of Lights New Braunfels at the New Braunfels MarketPlace 

As we illuminate the 64-foot tree adorned with the Hope Star graciously displayed by CEMEX and New Braunfels MarketPlace, we will celebrate this Christmas season with carols, memorial candle lighting, cookie decorating, hot chocolate, kid crafts, ornament decorating, and more. Even the big guy in the red suit will be there taking photos and spreading holiday cheer (while riding in with style on a magical truck).

1st Annual Tree of Lights at Hope Hospice of the Hill Country

We are excited to bring Hope Hospice's Annual Tree of Lights to the Hill Country!  Please join us as we illuminate 30 foot tree adorned with the Hope Star graciously displayed by CEMEX and celebrate this Christmas season with carols, memorial candle lighting, cookie decorating, hot chocolate, kid crafts, ornament decorating, and more.  Santa won't miss this opportunity to show off our new tree in true holiday fashion. 

We hope to see you there!

Buy Your Hops for Hope Passport Now

The Hope Hospice Foundation collaborated with high-quality establishments throughout our area in efforts to raise funds for our mission of providing exceptional, compassionate care and focusing on quality of life when it matters most.  

This collaboration created the Hops for Hope Passport, a guidebook filled with 46 New Braunfels area establishments for guests to explore.  Purchase the passport for $25 and enjoy discounts on beverages, bites, activities and shopping until the end of July 2023! Collect a stamp at each partner location you visit – the more stamps you collect, the more prizes you’ll earn. Conquer the passport in its entirety and be entered in a grand prize drawing!

Each business has a dedicated passport page with drink, dining, activity and/or retail special offers. Included is also the address, hours, accommodations, social media info, dining options, and more so you can use the passport as a guide and plan your visit.

Throughout the year, we will also host pop-up passport parties at various passport partners where participants can redeem their stamps for prizes.  In addition, look out for fun, competitive incentives to win additional prizes!

Our locally owned establishments embrace the heart of community and collaboration, just as Hope Hospice has for nearly 40 years. It is this shared passion for our community that makes this passport such a perfect way for participants to discover and support some of the best parts of the greater New Braunfels area, all while supporting the mission of Hope Hospice.

By purchasing a Hops for Hope Passport, you are helping raise funds for grief counseling and support for children and families in our community, our We Honor Veterans program, and support for unfunded patients, ensuring that no one has to die alone.


Hops for Hope Passports can be purchased online and picked up at the Hope Hospice offices located at 611 N. Walnut, New Braunfels, TX 78130 or at a pop-up party (various dates and locations – follow Hope Hospice on Facebook and Instagram for more information).
