Light Up Lakeland For Literacy – Luminaries Go Out Dec 9 at 6pm
Don’t forget, the Sunday after the Christmas Parade we will be lining our curbs with beautiful luminaries for our very-first Light Up Lakeland for Literacy event in partnership with The Lunz Group! At 6pm on December 9, the City of Lakeland residents will set out the luminaries and “shine a light” on the literacy needs within our community. All proceeds will benefit the League’s initiatives in women and children’s wellness, and specifically, literacy development for birth through school-aged children. Kits are $15 for 20 or $30 for 30 luminaries, which include sand, candles, bags and instructions. Orders will be delivered to homes the week prior. You can purchase your luminaries at the Christmas Parade! Stations will be selling take-home ready kits at stations in Munn Park as well as Lake Mirror Promenade. This will be your LAST chance to participate in this year’s luminary event!
