13th Annual Lights for Lydia

Lights 2018 Northridge 2 | Lights 2018

     Individuals throughout the CSRA will light luminaries in their driveways and neighborhoods Sunday evening (rain date), December 2nd, as a beacon of hope to those battling cancer while commemorating loved ones lost. Proceeds keep services free for women and girls coping with cancer.
