The second annual Little Lights Banquet & Silent Auction will be held on October 23 from 7-10 pm at the Hilton Arlington. The theme is "Ignite the Light". Tickets are $50 a plate, or $500 to sponsor a table for 10. Last year's banquet was a huge success, raising much- needed money that helped Little Lights offer a variety of top-qual- ity programs to the children of SE, DC. We were thrilled to hear from our guest speaker, Brian McLaren, as well as our Executive Director Steve Park and the Little Lights Choir.
