LUMINARIA is an illuminated display of personalized bags honoring our loved ones. Purchased by donors from across the globe for a $25 donation, each luminaria bag is uniquely displayed IN MEMORY OF or IN HONOR OF our loved one(s). Thousands of volunteers and donors come together to produce LUMINARIA events across the United States and the United Kingdom✨

Following each LUMINARIA display, all donors will receive an exclusive link to photos and videos as a keepsake.  100% of all proceeds raised at LUMINARIA fund Empower events and mentorship and help ensure all programs remain at no charge to the family.


Purchase a luminaria bag, attend a private viewing party in select cities, or serve as a volunteer.  See below:


LUMINARIA displays are taking place at various cities across the country in honor of Mother’s and Father’s Day.  Honor your loved ones at one – or all of the events – and illuminate the night at a historical lighthouse in New England, on the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool, the beachfront in Santa Monica, and more.
