6:00 pm –  Lantern Release!

A few weeks ago, Amy’s husband, Don, was driving home from work in his pick-up truck when he first heard “I’m Gonna Love You Through It,” by Martina McBride, on the radio. He was so deeply moved by the song that he had to pull over to the side of the road afterwards and pull himself back together. The next day, he forwarded the music video to Amy with a simple message: You need to watch this, babe. Amy did, and her reaction mirrored Don’s. Tears flowed and she found great strength in the knowledge that, like Don, so many people everywhere were in this fight together with their loved ones. “I can’t imagine what it would feel like to have so many people gather around you to release lanterns of pure white light heavenward,” Amy said. Kristi Rugh Kahl from Team Amy decided it was time for Amy to experience it for herself. This is the inspiration behind our upcoming benefit, Sky Lights of Love.

You can Participate!

  • Purchase a Lantern, and join us as we gather together to release hundreds of lanterns of light over Belleville Lake in Amy’s honor ! Lanterns will be distributed when you check-in at the event.  Lanterns are available by pre-sale only.  Purchase Lanterns by November 27, 2011.  No Lanterns will be sold at the door.
  • Can’t be there? You can still purchase a lantern, and we will release it on your behalf.

We look forward to seeing as many of you there as possible!
