Take Back the Night Candle Light Vigil

Take a stand against violence in our community. On Monday, February 13, 2012 from 8:00pm until 9:30pm, a candlelight vigil will be held in remembrance of Emie Romero.  Please RSVP on Facebook.

The vigil will take place on Palm Street next to Beach Road, near Godfather's Bar. Please gather in the street by 8:00 PM. At 8:30, a walk will be led around the Garapan Tourist District (clockwise from Godfather's to Winchell's, Fiesta, Hyatt, and back to Godfather's by 9:00 PM).

There will be a moment of silence at 9:00 PM, followed by prayer and song. Please wear white.

Candles will be available for a $5 donation. All proceeds will go to support Emie's two children in the Philippines. Donations will also be accepted at Godfather's Bar.

Although I am not currently living on Saipan, Emie was my wife's friend and co-worker. Edz is coordinating the vigil and some fundraising for Emie's two kids. If you would like to make a donation online, you can donate via Paypal. Edz will ensure the money gets to the kids.
