14th Annual Flames of Hope held at Waterfire

Providence

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — The 14th Annual Flames of Hope: A Celebration of Life was held at Waterfire Saturday night.

The event is sponsored in part by the Gloria Gemma Breast Cancer Resource Foundation and aims to raise money and awareness for breast cancer.

Just about an hour after sunset, the Illumination of Life 150-person torch procession arrived in the Waterplace Park Basin from Station Park leading into a Ring of Fire.

Once a year, tens of thousands of people gather to light the way towards hope and healing for anyone touched by breast cancer.

Gloria Gemma’s Flames of Hope: A Celebration of Life was created to honor Breast Cancer Awareness Month by turning the city of Providence PINK and sparking a movement to inspire awareness, compassion, and support.
