— 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.
