Celebration of Hope

ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) -- On Aug. 10 the annual Relay For Life-Celebration of Hope event will take place at Tower Grove Park.

Relay For Life-Celebration of Hope is a festival-style event that thanks local business and community members that fundraise year-round to help support the fight against cancer while celebrating cancer survivors and remembering those lost to the disease.

The event will include games, a silent auction, raffles and live music. When the sun sets, a luminaria ceremony will begin, which will have bags lit in memory or honor of someone how has battled or battling cancer.

Cancer survivors who attend will receive a free t-shirt and enjoy a reception for themselves and a caregiver.

Funds raised from Relay For Life events allow the American Cancer Society to attack cancer in dozens of ways, each of them critical to achieving a world without cancer.

The event will be held from 5-10 p.m.
