Bill and Marilyn Watson, Founders and Michelle’s parents share “Our daughter Michelle loved life and lived her days joyfully and filled with hope and positivity. This “Hope Lights the Night” is an idea we had, to gather the community, provide an opportunity to share our unique stories, celebrate our loved ones, honor those we’ve lost, and illuminate the lives of those who have touched our hearts. An event that represents hope, joy and positivity in all of us.”
