Luminaria samples 2

 Luminaria bags are used to line the track and light the way for our walkers throughout the night. They honor our cancer survivors and help us remember all our cancer warriors that live on in our hearts.  

This year we have something new and exciting for our Luminaria Ceremony!! In addition to our white luminaria bags, we also have three additional options (see photo above).  These three options are available for purchase at the luminaria tent until 7:00 pm on the day of Relay (June 6, 2015)

   White - $10 - The white luminaria bags are available for purchase online, through your team captain (who can obtain the bags at our Team Captain meetings), or at the luminaria tent on the day of Relay.  The white bags ordered online will be pre-decorated.  If you would like to decorate your own bag, please request a bag(s) from your Team Captain.     

Purple - $15 - The purple bags are the same size as the white bags, but are a gradient design (dark purple to light).  These bags can be decorated in the same fashion as the white luminaria bags

Gold - $20 - The gold bags are the same size as the white bags, but have cut out stars so that the light shines through the bag.  Due to the cutout design, these bags can have minimal additional decorating 

 Luminaria Box - $100 - This is a cardboard luminaria approximately 22" wide x 28" tall x 4" deep and can be decorated.  This luminaria box can be recycled for future Relay For Life events!!
