Luminarias honor every life touched by cancer. You can dedicate them to a loved one lost, someone currently battling, or anyone who’s overcome it. When you attend Slam Tilt Cancer, you’ll see the luminarias decorated with names and sometimes messages to the people they’re dedicated to. At Slam Tilt Cancer you are welcome to create your own luminaria to honor your loved ones.
During American Cancer Society’s signature fundraiser Relay For Life participants share an emotional moment when each luminaria is lit in remembrance of a life touched by cancer and they take a moment of silence to remember the loved ones they’re dedicated to. If you make a $10 or more donation for your luminaria at Slam Tilt Cancer we will bring your personalized luminaria to the Relay For Life of your choosing across the country.
Please contact Kendra Zien if you are interested in volunteering to be a judge for the tournament, to help with event registration, to help with the ACS Mission table, to help with the raffle table, to help with the luminaria table, or to help with event set-up and break-down.
