The Sun City West PRIDES are hard at work, filling bags with sand for their luminaria project. The tradition of placing white lighted bags outside your home on Christmas Eve is a Southwest tradition the PRIDES hope to keep alive.

The PRIDES partner with Bob’s Variety to make the 12-light kits available and will be selling the kits at the store for $8 beginning Nov. 12 through Dec. 24. The kits contain everything you need to set up your display. The lighted bags also make a nice way to invite friends to your holiday parties.

The PRIDES will also be accepting “Luminaria for Luke” donations for luminaria kits to give to the families at Luke Air Force and to benefit the Luke Library. Please look for the PRIDES at Bob’s Variety, 13583 Camino del Sol Sundome Plaza. The PRIDES are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

The PRIDES will be at Bob’s Variety, 13583 Camino del Sol, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday through Christmas Eve, Monday, Dec. 24.
