Candle Lighting 2015

candle lighting banneer websiteThe Tony Brown Foundation is holding its 7th annual candle lighting, “The Light of Love Shines On” in conjunction with The Compassionate Friends. The Compassionate Friends Worldwide Candle Lighting unites family and friends around the globe in lighting candles for one hour to honor the memories of the sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, and grandchildren who left too soon.  Our foundation acknowledges and invites anyone who is missing a loved one, parent, spouse, friend, to join us in celebrating their lives and remembering them with love and hope.  As candles are lit at 7:00 p.m. local time, hundreds of thousands of persons commemorate and honor the memory of all gone too soon.

Now believed to be the largest mass candle lighting on the globe, the 19th annual Worldwide Candle Lighting, a gift to the bereavement community of The Compassionate Friends, creates a virtual 24-hour wave of light as it moves from time zone to time zone. TCF’s WWCL started in the United States in 1997 as a small internet observance, but has since swelled in numbers as word has spread throughout the world of the remembrance. Hundreds of formal candle lighting events are held and thousands of informal candle lightings are conducted in homes as families gather in quiet remembrance of children who have died, but will never be forgotten.

Our foundation joins The Worldwide Candle Lighting giving bereaved families everywhere the opportunity to remember their loved ones so that their light may always shine!
