To remember and honor those who have cancer, had cancer, or have been taken by cancer, a special “Light Up the Night” or “Luminaria” event will be held on Monday, March 4 from 6:30 to 8pm at DeVino’s Pizza and Pasta, 2221 Morello Ave., in the Hillcrest Shopping Center.

This free event is open to everyone and is sponsored by the Pleasant Hill Relay For Life, a local fundraiser for the American Cancer Society.

A Luminaria is a white paper bag decorated with words and artwork, illuminated by a glow stick and dedicated to a loved one with cancer. At the March 4 event, people may purchase Luminaria bags ($10 suggested), decorate them with materials provided and/or participate in a brief Luminaria ceremony from 7 to 7:15pm. Children are welcome to attend and decorate Luminaria bags.

People who wish to have a pizza or other meal during the event will be pleased to know that DeVino’s will donate 15% of the food purchases to Relay For Life.

The Luminaria event is a precursor to the fourth annual Pleasant Hill Relay For Life, which will be held June 1-2 at the Pleasant Hill Middle School.

The Relay for Life is not a race or a run; teams form beforehand and raise money. During the relay, teams keep at least one member on the track for a full 24 hours to signify that cancer never sleeps and neither does the fight against cancer.
