Luminaria bags used during Relay For Life will be weighed down by cans of food from our Food Drive; after Relay the cans will be donated to Micah's Place.
Relay For Life Fernandina Beach/Yulee will be held at Main Beach on March 21, 2015. This 12-hour event, 10:00 am to 10:00 pm, includes a great line-up of entertainment, starting with a FREE Survivors Breakfast and concluding with a Luminaria Ceremony after dark.
It is often breezy at the beach and to keep these lighted bags grounded, we are also having a canned food drive. These canned goods will be placed inside of the white, paper bags that are designated to honor the memory or celebrate the life of someone who has battled cancer. Prior to the Ceremony, a tea candle will be placed in each bag, and when they are all lit, it sets a dramatic tone for the emotional ceremony that follows.
Donations from the heart will be collected on site, where you can decorate a bag for someone special in your life. You can do this in advance by contacting a Team Member on facebook, or by visiting the Fernandina Beach Arts Market on March 14th.
You are encouraged to drop off your canned foods at the Fernandina Beach Market Place farmers’ market, located on North Seventh Street on any Saturday until March 21, 2015. The Market Place is open from from 9:00 am until 1:00 pm. After the Relay For Life event, these canned foods will be donated to Micah’s Place, Nassau County’s certified, domestic violence shelter.
