AB TO HOST RELAY FOR LIFE LUMINARIA FESTIVAL

PHILIPPI, W.Va. - The Alderson Broaddus Relay For Life Committee will be holding its 2nd annual Luminaria Festival on Thursday, April 25. The event will kick off at 8pm on the Apollo Quad with Kan Jam, corn hole games, and Croquet. Each game will cost $0.25/turn. The committee will also be a drawing for an iPod Shuffle at this time.

At 9:30pm, the Luminaria service will take place. This is a time for students and members of the college community to unite to remember and honor those who have had cancer. The ceremony will include a presentation of the luminaria bags and a candle lighting. Coach Dennis Creehan, AB’s athletic director, and Philippi Baptist Church minister Jon Villers will also share a few thoughts.

The ceremony is free. Luminaria bag sales will be available that evening and conclude at 9:15pm. They are $5 each.
