Westville – Purdue University North Central students, along with the American Cancer Society, will host a tree decorating contest and a Luminaria ceremony on Dec. 1 at 7 p.m. in the PNC Library-Student-Faculty Building, Room 144. It is free and open to the public.
PNC students in this semester’s Introduction to Public Relations course, Cody Haver, Sarah Maddox, Vanessa Bruce, Heather Hollenberger, Brian Gonzalez, and T.J. Stephens, are coordinating this event as part of a service-learning project.
The students all have had family members or friends affected by this disease. Their goal is to spread the message that everyone in the battle against cancer is never alone. They hope to shed some light on this topic and will use Christmas lights to do so.
This event is intended to give individuals a way to remember loved-ones who have been taken by cancer, as well as to celebrate those who have won the battle and inspire those who are still fighting.
