Description:

The Compassionate Friends Worldwide Candle Lighting unites family and friends around the globe in lighting candles for one hour to honor and remember children who have died at any age from any cause. As candles are lit at 7 p.m. local time, creating a virtual wave of light, hundreds of thousands of persons commemorate and honor the memory of children in a way that transcends all ethnic, cultural, religious, and political boundaries.

For the past two years, I have organized a Candle lighting ceremony in memory of  my son, Tony Brown.  The first year was a modest event, held in the court room of the Trumbull Town Hall and attended by mostly family and friends.   Last year, it grew to over 100 people and had enough food donated that we were able to bring some of the leftovers to local shelters.  We also started a program with The salvation army.  Those attending were able to visit the website and choose a child to bring a gift for.  We donated almost 50 gifts to needy children in memory of our children.  There was also a slide show that played during the event of the beautiful faces of our children.

It was a beautiful evening celebrating and remembering all our children who have gone too soon.  This year, the event will continue to grow and bring together a community of grieving families in a night of hope and remembrance.  This event would not be possible without the generosity of our contributors and supporters. It takes a great deal of work, time, and resources to put together a celebration of our families.

Please, help keep this much needed event going and make a donation to The Tony Brown Foundation.
