Annual Memorial Candle Lighting


candle lighting banneer websiteEvery year we hold this beautiful event full of love, hope and memories in conjunction with The Compassionate Friends World WIde Candle Lighting.  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.  The Tony Brown Foundation extends the invitation to include and acknowledges  ALL our loved ones, spouses, friends, parents, ANYONE who has left us with just memories. As candles are lit at 7:00 p.m. local time, hundreds of thousands of persons commemorate and honor the memory of all children gone too soon.

The event is FREE to all.  Doors open at 6:00 with our program beginning at 6:30  There will be musical performances, special readings and a slideshow show remembrance.  Candles will be lit at Exactly 7PM to coincide with TCF’s worldwide lighting.  Afterwards there will be social time with pot luck desserts, snacks, and coffee. If you would like your loved one included in our slide show, please email a photo to anne@thetonybrownfoundation.org by December 12th!  You may also include a few others to be used in our “background” slide show which plays throughout the evening.

Every year we have a collection for the local food pantry and Toys for Tots.  If you would like to contribute, please bring an unwrapped toy and/or a non perishable food item.

An RSVP is appreciated as it helps the planning process.

We look forward to sharing such a special evening with you!
