Piccarreto is chairperson of the 18-hour celebration which will get under way with an opening ceremony at 6 p.m. at the Town of Belleair soccer fields, which are adjacent to Town Hall. The event, whose purpose is to raise funds to fight cancer, will feature a campout, barbecue, dance and walk. Participants will light hundreds of luminaries at nightfall in recognition of those honored. Cancer survivors will walk the first lap. Individuals and teams will follow. A Survivorship Dinner for survivors and their spouses or caregivers is also planned in conjunction with the event. To register, call Nicole Hartwell at the Pinellas Unit of the American Cancer Society. Her number is (727) 546-9822, ext. 7009.
