Lanterns of Love

On Saturday, June 15th, the Sandbridge night sky will be filled with beautiful "Lanterns of Love"  in remembrance of those fighting or who have lost their battle to cancer.  This event is being organized by A Dolphin's Promise to help raise money for the Livestrong Foundation. 

Prior to the release,  a “Walk of Remembrance” at 7:30pm will be held along the beach in front of the Sandbridge Market.  Participants can walk along a path of luminaries lit in memory of cancer victims and survivors.  After the walk, the “Lanterns of Love” will be released, which should be a breathtaking sight to behold!   These will also be dedicated to individuals and will have personal messages attached.   Luminaries are available for $5.  Lanterns are available for $10. 

Chinese Sky Lanterns are airborne paper lanterns traditionally constructed from rice paper and a bamboo frame.  A small wick is lit inside and the lantern only flies as long as the candle stays lit.  When they fall back down to the ground or water, they are completely biodegradable and will not harm the environment or sea life.

If for some reason you cannot attend this event, but would still like to sponsor a luminary or lantern, organizers can take a photo of your dedication for you.

Hope to see you Saturday night.  It should be a night to remember... filled with inspiration and beauty.  Don't miss it!
