It's an event about grieving, community, perseverance, and importantly, recovery. As a night to shine through the darkness, it serves as a reminder of light and hope during a week filled with emotions. It's a time hopefully, the entire community can come together for survivors, friends, and allies alike to share experiences and support each other. The night will be studded with a capella performances by fellow Hoos. featuring Academical Village People and Hoos In Treble!
