Get ready to Light The Night in a brand new way!

This year's Manhattan Light The Night is taking our mission to the main stage of Rumsey Playfield in Central Park, and we are bringing you an experience that you'll never forget!
We are excited to announce that this year's Light The Night will be a
concert event featuring VANESSA CARLTON as our headline performer, along with local bands, an inspirational lantern ceremony, and stories that will move you. 

Due to security and capacity concerns, only pre-registered participants with $100 personally fundraised will be permitted to enter the event site at the electronic check-in. This rule does apply to all members of your team, so be sure to encourage everyone to fundraise on their personal web pages! Some initial questions you may have about the event can be answered on our FAQ Sheet

If you would like to experience a traditional Walk with your team, all participants are welcome to join us at our Light The Night events in Queens or Staten Island.  These events do not have a fundraising minimum required, but those that do fundraise $100 will receive all Champion For Cures benefits, including a t-shirt and lantern!

Staten Island: Saturday, October 1st - Midland Beach Promenade
Queens: Saturday, October 22nd - Astoria Park

Your Light The Night Staff is here to help make this an empowering and inspirational experience for you! Please do not hesitate to reach out with questions or guidance on how to fundraise for success. To help you on your way, view our Welcome Kit for some great fundraising ideas.
