Join your North Carolina neighbors in illuminating Southern Village to support the Ronald McDonald House of Chapel Hill. 7,000 Luminaries will be placed in front of all houses and will be lit just after sunset (around 5:00 pm.) This annual event is in it's 18th year and for the past 17 years, neighborhoods throughout the triangle have lined their streets and sidewalks with beautiful luminaries to show their support for the families staying at the House throughout the year and especially during the holiday season. Last year, Light a Luminary raised $58,000 and over 40,000 luminaries were lit!

If you would like to help and take part of this amazing event, you can help in two ways:

1.Volunteer to assemble & deliver luminary kits: Gather at 11 am on Saturday, December 10th at the Southern Village Club parking lot.  Bring your family & friends and enjoy cider and treats as you work.  Youth volunteers can fulfill service learning requirements (forms available at the event).  Sign up in advance, or just show up!

2.Donate to Ronald McDonald House: When deciding how much to contribute, please consider the following:   $65 provides one night of lodging for a family, $25 feeds a family for one day. 

Send contributions, payable to Ronald McDonald House, to Chris Simmons at 306 Westside Drive.

'Tis the season to give back and support your community!
