RAIN will not dampen the spirits of organisers preparing for the Light the Night event tomorrow night.
The Leukaemia Foundation fund-raiser will be held at the Wannon Rooms in Koroit Street from 5pm.
Event organiser Laura Levett said people could register on the night but she was hoping about 200 people would attend.
Participants will carry coloured lanterns on a short walk to remember those who have died from blood cancer, and to support those living with the disease.
Blue lanterns represent hope, white lanterns were for people to reflect on their life with cancer and gold lanterns were to remember loved ones who had died.
Mrs Levett said the night would be emotional for some.
“I’ve had phone calls from people who have recently lost a loved one,” she said.
“There will be a few tears, there’s no doubt.
“There will also be lots of kids who have had blood cancers and have survived.”
The family event will include live music, a barbecue, cake stall, raffles and a screening of the movie Toy Story 3 from 8pm for a gold coin donation.
