Light Up the Night Scheduled

Savannah's getting ready to Light Up the Night. The annual nationwide fundraiser promotes awareness for blood-related diseases. The event will take place in October, but a planning breakfast was held this morning.

Savannah's Light Up the Night is a fundraising walk from City Market to Forsyth Park. Organizers are encouraging people to form teams now and start raising money. They hope everyone will participate.

"There's a lot of ways to raise money," said event chairwoman Julie Olsen. "Sometimes you can ask family and friends. We have some great years where fifty percent of the profit go to Light Up the Night, we really just ask people to have fun with it."

Light Up the Night will take place this year on October 15. Last year, Savannah raised $43,000.
