Front Porch Luminaria
The fight against cancer is being challenged like never before, and the mission of the American Cancer Society is so critical to families facing cancer. In the face of this threat to our mission, we are bringing communities across the state of Oklahoma and the Texas Panhandle together to show that we won’t back down from our mission to save lives from cancer.
If you have never experienced a Luminaria Ceremony, it is a moving display of tributes to either honor loved ones who are surviving cancer or to remember loved ones lost.
Traditionally, white paper bags are decorated, and a light is placed inside to create the Luminaria.
Please, join our Front Porch Luminaria Ceremony on May 15th, and be a part of this area wide movement that will put hope on display in front of our homes, and raise crucial funds to support the mission. Here’s how:
Step 1: Log on to your community Relay For Life website or find the Relay For Life nearest you at www.RelayForLife.org, and donate just $10 for a Luminaria.
Step 2: Share the website link with 10 friends and invite them to participate in the ceremony with you.
Step 3: Check out the event discussion for instructions and ideas on how to create/decorate a Luminaria with items in your home.
Step 4: Place your Luminaria on your front porch(or any other display that you would like) on May 15th, any time between 7:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m., and post a photo in this event’s discussion so we can honor and remember together, even though we are apart. Please also use #ACSOKTXPAN so we can see your beautiful tributes.
Thank you for being a part of this movement to spread hope and save lives. If you have questions, contact Regan.Nabors@cancer.org
