Candles will be lit in each of the bags purchased to honor cancer survivors and to remember those lost and are left burning throughout the night to remind participants of the importance of their efforts during Relay.
During the ceremony there will also be a slide show presented on a large television screen. Those who purchase Luminarias will also have the ability to submit a photo for the presentation photo slide show.
