In honor of National Domestic Violence Awareness Month, the Partnership Against Domestic Violence will host its eighth annual Domestic Violence Candlelight Vigil Oct. 16 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at the InterContinental Hotel’s Windsor Garden in Buckhead.

This event will recognize the nearly 100 individuals who lost their lives to intimate partner violence in the past year and provide a forum for survivors to tell their stories of overcoming abuse with the help of local domestic violence organizations.

A candle will be lit for each life lost, and will give family and friends a chance to grieve together while raising awareness. The event is free and open to the public.
