Thousands Gather for Light Up Durham
Posted December 9, 1997
DURHAM — The annual Light Up Durham holiday celebration was a brilliant success for the public and the city Monday night. It was a success for Durham Public Schools as well.
Thousands of people poured into the Durham Bulls Athletic Park for the musical celebration. There was also a raffle to help pay for a Magnet School choir trip to London. Proceeds from the gala affair also go toward other projects at Durham schools.
Last year, Light up Durham raised $3,000 for the Salvation Army.
