ACS Night of Hope Event to Be Held at Newport Aquarium

The American Cancer Society has announced a statewide effort to raise money and awareness in the fight against cancer. Called “Hope Lives Here,” the effort includes a donation drive and Night of Hope events in seven locations across the state on September 18, 2015.

The events will strive to turn the Commonwealth purple, and organizers anticipate that more than 1,500 Kentuckians will take part in the events. Night of Hope events will take place at:

  • Lexington’s Triangle Park
  • Kentucky Lake /Sportsman’s Lodge – Benton, Kentucky
  • Newport Aquarium – Northern Kentucky
  • Blazin’ Bluegrass Festival – Southeastern Kentucky
  • Natural Bridge – Eastern Kentucky
  • Fountain Square Park – Bowling Green, Kentucky
  • Smothers Park – Owensboro, Kentucky

For Kentucky residents who cannot attend the events, organizers hope that they will join the effort by turning on their porch lights and lighting a luminaria in support of the effort on September 18th.

Residents of the commonwealth can reserve their spot at one of the seven events and make a secure donation on-line at hopeliveshereky.org. Thank you gifts are offered for each donation level:

  • $12 – Hope Lives Here T-shirt in heather purple
  • $25 – Hope Lives Here purple mason jar luminaria
  • $35 – Hope Lives Here T-shirt in heather purple and Hope Lives Here purple mason jar luminaria
