Light the Night, is a nationwide annual fundraising event – an emotional and uplifting evening that aims to shine light on one of life’s darkest moments. Survivors celebrate by carrying white lanterns and taking part in an inspiring survivor ceremony within the survivor circle as a white beam of hope reaches up to the sky, illuminating the darkness. A Remembrance Pavilion honors those who have passed and allows a quiet place where family, friends and co-workers can leave tributes to their loved ones. Red lanterns are displayed for supporters, while gold lanterns represent those in memory. #LightTheNight
