The Chatham CARES Community Pharmacy will host its annual Celebration of Lights drive-through fundraiser on December 4, 2021 at St. Julia Catholic Church in Siler City, NC, from 6:00 - 7:00 pm. Celebrate the season outdoors with a live band playing holiday favorites and a bilingual Christmas message, all from the safety and comfort of your own vehicle. Luminaries will be on display during the service, guiding vehicles along the drive through holiday experience. The parking lot opens at 6:00 pm, and visitors can drive through to look at the luminaries, or stop for the brief message. Admission to the event is free, and luminaries can be purchased for $10 each. 100% of the sale of luminaries will be used for prescription drug purchases, which are then dispensed to patients through Chatham CARES Community Pharmacy.

Purchase your luminaries by calling Patricia at 919.663.0177. If you are purchasing luminaries in memory or in honor of someone and would like the name to be included in the program for the service, please do so by November 30.
