Newton, NC – Carolina Caring invites the community to an evening of celebration during its 2nd annual Light Up a Life event to be held on Tuesday, December 21 from 6:30 – 9:30 p.m. at the organization’s Newton campus located at 3975 Robinson Road in Newton, NC.

Participants can purchase luminary candles in honor of anyone who has made an impact on their lives, including family members, co-workers, pastors, teachers, physicians and more. These candles can also be purchased in memory of anyone who has shone brightly in their lives and has passed away like a parent, child, pet, grandparent, or friend.

Participants are then invited to gather at Carolina Caring’s Newton campus to share memories while driving through the campus beautifully aglow. For many, this brings peace, purpose and positivity to the holiday season.

Proceeds from this event will help Carolina Caring to provide holistic, compassionate hospice and palliative care to those who cannot afford it.

Luminaries are $10 each. For more information, please visit, email or call 828.466.0466, extension 2328.
