Join us for the 6th Annual Candlelight Vigil and Remembrance Event in honor of Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month.
When: October 15th, 2017
Time: Check-in begins at 6:00pm. Ceremony starts promptly at 7pm
Location: 11150 Hilltop Rd., Parker, CO
Cost: FREE, however a donation of $5 or more is highly encouraged. Your donation supports the photographer, provides candles, and helps families through pregnancy and infant loss services provided by Dragonflies For Ruby.
We are also selling versions of the large annual memorial candle (pictured below) at a cost of $20; which can be picked up the day of the event. Add this option when you register below!
Candles ARE provided for this event.
What to Expect:
When you arrive at the event, there will be a check in at a desk where you will locate your candle(s). Light snacks and refreshments will be available.
We begin the event promptly at 7:00 where we light the large memorial candle, offer a welcoming and a poem reading. Others are invited to share a poem, story or just talk. We then move outside to the candle lighting location and read all the names for each of the babies/children who were registered for the event.
After each name has been read, the family will present and light their candle and place it in the “heart shape.” During the gathering, music is played as the candles flicker. The entire evening is about an hour and a half. There will be an opportunity for photographs with your candle within the heart.
Come join others who understand your loss and honor those children who have passed through pregnancy, infant, and child loss. Photographer Ashley Henry will be there to take photographs of each candle. You do NOT have to be present to have your baby(ies) name read or their candle lit.
To have your baby/child’s name included on the events annual memorial candle, please register by 11:59pm on October 13th, 2018. Your baby/child will have a candle lit in remembrance regardless of the time of registration and walk-in registrations are accepted.
We are raising funds to bring a CuddleCot to Colorado! All funds donated at the vigil will go to the CuddleCot Campaign.
