Light a Luminary

Every light that shines honors a Ronald McDonald House family.

Light a Luminary: December 24, 2023

Our community has been lighting luminaries in honor of Ronald McDonald House families since 1987.  This holiday tradition has helped to provide a “home away from home” for over 25,000 families. 
Luminary kits are $10.00 and contain 6 bags, 6 candles, and sand.  They are sold by retail stores and volunteer Street Captains.  The luminaries are lit on December 24, with each light shining to honor an RMHCPT family.
