The event will start at 11AM with the opening ceremony and conclude at 11PM with the luminaria ceremony remembering all those who have lost their battle with cancer and honoring those who are still fighting this disease. Throughout the day, attendees can expect a large silent auction, fun games, a bounce house, bingo, Tae Kwon Do demonstrations, and so much more.
