Donations of canned goods sought for Relay for Life Luminaria ceremony

Back to Front Page


Community members and participants at this year’s American Cancer Society Relay for Life of Duneland are asked to bring donations of canned goods. The cans will be used to anchor each luminaria bag during the Luminaria Ceremony at 9 p.m. Friday. After the Relay is over, the donations will be given to the Westchester Neighbors Food Pantry and Housing Opportunities.

The Luminaria Ceremony is an important part of the Relay for Life by providing the opportunity to remember loved ones lost to cancer and honor those who have won their battle. At dusk, the track will be brightened by the glow of each illuminated luminaria bag. Each one has been dedicated and represents someone special who has been profoundly affected by cancer and the family and friends who continue to fight back in their honor.

Luminaria bags are available at the following locations in Chesterton: Duneland Resale, 801 Broadway; Centier Bank,; Chesterton/Duneland Chamber of Commerce, 220 Broadway; Chesterton Tribune, 193 S. Calumet Road; Peggy Sue’s Diner,; UPS Store, 701 Plaza Drive. Luminaria bags may also be purchased at the event and decorated until 8:30 p.m.

This year’s Relay, themed, “There’s a Superhero in You!” will be from 6:00 p.m. - 9 a.m. June 17-18 at Chesterton Middle School, 651 W. Morgan Ave. For more information, please visit
