Make a Luminary to Honor Your Loved One


As the Party in the Park planning committee prepares for an online 20th anniversary celebration on July 27, we ask for community members to make luminaries at home this year. Please enjoy making your luminary to honor a sarcoma patient/ survivor or a loved one lost to sarcoma, and send in a photograph of the luminary. We will include all images received by June 16 in our closing ceremony. During a joint candle lighting ceremony hosted by our master of ceremonies, we will share a video of the luminary images with viewers at home from across the Midwest and the nation.

When you register for the 20th Anniversary be sure to check the box if you want a luminary kit mailed to your home. The luminary kit includes a white bag, a wax tea candle, and a carousel horse cut out image. Also, by registering, we will send you important email updates for viewing and participating in the online event.

Please send images of your luminary and name of the person it honors (In Memory of / In Honor of) to: Please submit by June 16 to be included in the online event. We will put all photos received in a RIS luminary photo album and shared on the website event highlights.
