21st Annual Candlelight Vigil is set for Tuesday, October 3, 2017

Please Join Us

LACASA Center hosts its annual Domestic Violence Candlelight Vigil each October to remember lives lost and recognize the courage of survivors.

Guests gather in the courtyard of the Historic County Courthouse in downtown Howell for the Vigil at 7 p.m. 

Community leaders speak, the Howell a Cappella Choir performs, and participants light candles in memory of domestic violence victims.

Memorial tributes are arranged on the hill of the amphitheater to honor the Michigan children, women and men who have lost their lives to domestic violence.

October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

Residents and businesses may purchase purple string lights, light bulbs and lanterns from LACASA and hang them during October with a cause poster that says in part: Domestic Violence Has No Place in Our Community.

For more information about ordering string lights, porch-light bulbs or lanterns and obtaining free posters, contact Nicole Matthews-Creech, LACASA Community Education Director, at 517-548-1350.
