NOPE of Hillsborough Annual Candlelight Vigil
NOPE of Hillsborough will host its 10th Annual Candle Light Vigil on October 7, 2021, starting at 7:00 pm. (We invite you to arrive as early as 6 pm to view and reflect on our Memorial Wall which honors those lives lost to a substance-related death.)
This powerful one-hour community event will be held at Hillsborough High School, located at 5000 N Central Ave, Tampa, FL 33603. Admission and parking are free.
This vigil is held in memory of those who have lost their lives due to drug and alcohol-related incidents, to honor those who have lost a loved one to a substance-related death, and to help those living with the challenges associated with the disease of addiction.
The emcee for this special evening will be James Tully, ABC Action News Anchor. Our speakers will share words of hope and encouragement about this epidemic that has taken hold of our nation, state, and community.
Songs and stories will be shared before we move outside to the school’s front lawn to light candles in honor of those lives lost to substance abuse. If you would like to add your loved one’s story and photo to this year’s Memorial Wall please upload their photo and your message to our website at Memorial Wall – Nope Of Hillsborough (nopehillsborough.org)
(or you may bring their photo to the Vigil at 6 pm).
This event is free. All are welcome. Plenty of free parking is available at Hillsborough High School. Contact Beth Butler at 813.244.1432 or NOPEhillsborough@gmail.com for further information.
