Neighbors helping neighbors in Cheshire

New Haven

The community gathered for the 14th annual “Lights of Hope” in Cheshire Saturday night.

Some 50,000 luminaries were placed throughout the town to shine the importance of neighbors helping neighbors.

This event first started on just one street and the money that was raised went to relay for life.

The meaning behind it all would then change after tragedy struck the town.

“Two years later after the petit tragedy we decided to the luminari event to try to bring our town back to gather as a form of heeling. That year we lit more than 100,00 luminaries throughout our community“, said Don Walsh, founder of Cheshire Lights of Hope 

All the money raised from this event stays in Cheshire, going to several organizations and scholarships.
