Light A Luminary 2022

This project brings together local communities in honor of the families staying at the House who are unable to be in their own home during the holidays due to their child’s serious illness or injuries. During December, the House will offer luminary kits for sale at $10 each. Each kit includes supplies for ten luminaries. All proceeds benefit the Ronald McDonald House of Chapel Hill.

We are excited to continue this tradition and hope you will join us to make our 29th annual event better than ever before!

Every neighborhood has a coordinator, or group of coordinators, who organize the community’s luminary and fundraising efforts. Each neighborhood chooses a lighting night that works best for their community. The luminary lighting is a special night for young and old alike as we usher in the holiday season with the beautiful glow of candlelight.

Each kit contains supplies to make 10 luminaries and includes 10 candles, 10 cups, 10 white paper bags, and sand. Each kit costs $10. Some neighborhoods may also choose to do a bulk purchase. Speak with your coordinator for more information on your community lighting.
