How to Get Involved


Each year the luminaries and sidewalk messages are truly the heart of this event. We are inviting you to take part in this year’s lighting of the luminaries. Your donation of $10 per remembered name will provide you with a luminary for each person you’d like to remember. Our theme is to celebrate the dash – we all have a date we are born and a date we die – it is the dash between that represents how we touched lives on earth.
