Tree of Life

The Tree of Life Ceremony is an annual event that honors those who have lost their lives in car crashes. ​​The event is open and free to the public.

The tree will be illuminated with lights and Christmas bulbs:

  • Red bulbs memorializing the victims of alcohol-related crashes;
  • Blue bulbs memorializing law enforcement who've died on North Carolina roadways; and
  • White lights commemorating the lives lost in all vehicle crashes.

The ceremony will be held:

Friday, Dec. 6, 2019
6 p.m.
State Capitol
1 E. Edenton St.
Raleigh, N.C. 27601

The memorial event precedes the annual holiday Booze it & Lose It​ campaign which runs Dec. 16 through Jan. 5, 2020.

The ‘Tree of Life’ ceremony is funded by The Governor’s Highway Safety Program which supports a myriad of safe-driving initiatives like Click It or Ticket, Booze It & Lose It, BikeSafe NC, Watch For Me NC, Speed a Little. Lose a Lot, and North Carolina’s Vision Zero initiative, which is working to meet the goal of zero deaths on through community involvement and data-driven safety interventions.
