Sunday, December 12
5:30 - 8:30 pm
Illuminight is a holiday tradition of Rio Terrace, Quesnel Heights, and Patricia Heights, as of 2020, Laurier Heights, and 2021, Lynnwood and Elmwood.
On Sunday, December 12, between 5:30 and 8:30 pm, you are invited to display luminaria on your walk - creating a warm, festive glow, on a cold winter's night. Then - go out and enjoy festive, seasonal activities in the pocket parks around the places we call home.
The sale of luminaria benefits Jasper Place Wellness Centre, a West Edmonton anti-poverty agency. Please help us shed some light on poverty within our community.
Luminaria are $10 per kit. Typical households require only 1 kit to line the sidewalk. We invite you to buy a kit for you, and your neighbours!
Luminaria will be available for pick up or delivery on Sunday, December 11.
While this is a fundraiser, we have worked hard to keep the cost of luminaria kits down. Each kit costs the Church $7 to make - which leaves only a $3 contribution to Jasper Place Wellness Centre. We rely on donations - which are tax receiptable - to fight poverty in West Edmonton.
Please donate using our online giving service. Make sure "Illuminight" is listed as a category. All donations over $20, given through Tithe.ly, will automatically receive a tax receipt.
