Around 500 people helped light the way for people suffering from Leukemia at Cook Park.
It’s estimated Orange will contribute $10,000 to the Leukemia Foundation on the back of Friday’s Light the Night fundraising effort.
“The funds will be used to provide support for people diagnosed with blood cancer, and also investing in research,” organiser Olivia West said.
Ms West said when her mum battled Leukemia 15 years ago, there were few options and treatments available.
“These days people have more treatment options and a lot more hope,” she said.
Ms West said the event couldn’t have been a success without the help of dedicated volunteers, supporters, sponsors and the people who helped light the night on Friday.
People can still donate to the cause at the Light the Night website.
