Light a Luminary

Every light that shines honors a Ronald McDonald House family.

Light a Luminary: December 22, 2019

Our community has been lighting luminaries in honor of Ronald McDonald House families since 1987.  This holiday tradition has helped to provide a “home-away-from-home” for over 23,000 families.  Luminary kits containing 6 bags, 6 candles, and sand are assembled by volunteers and sold by retail stores and volunteer Street Captains.  The luminaries are lit on December 22, with each light shining to honor an RMH family.
