Annual Luminary Night
December 9, 2017
The Tradition Continues in 2017!
Thank you to the entire Magnolia Point community for your support of the 2016 Luminary Scholarship Fund. We had over 50% participation in the community. The final total from kits and donations was $5,066.00 for the Magnolia Point Women's Club Scholarship Fund.
Many thanks go out to the wonderful volunteers who make this fundraising event a success every year. From the volunteer Block Captains who give their time during a very busy season, to the volunteers who assembled the 1500 kits, to the committee members, and to the website and financial accounting help - are all indispensable to this event.
Luminary Night is traditionally held the second Saturday in December. Once a date has beenconfirmed, information is provided through blast emails, the Magnolia Point Living Newsletter and the Women's Club Pointing the Way Newsletter.
Luminary Night began in 2001 as a fundraiser to support the many local charities supported by the Women's Club. Beginning with the 2014 event, all proceeds from the luminary sale are used to provide scholarships to young women graduating from Clay High School. This annual event has grown each year and now serves as one of the largest fundraisers for the Women's Club. Not only does the event raise money for our scholarships, it also signals the kickoff to the holiday season as neighbors get together throughout the community.
During the month of November, volunteer Block Captains take orders for the luminary kits.
Kits are $5.00 each and include 10 bags, 10 candles and 10 candle holders. Residents supply the sand/dirt for the bottom of the bags.
If you have any questions, please contact a committee member.
