According to the Charleston Regional Business Daily Journal, the annual Circle of Light Gala will be held on November 16 at 6:30 pm in downtown Charleston at Marion Square. The theme this year is an Asian theme which was inspired by one of the events sponsors, MTV Chi. MTV will be filming the event and there will be live performances including a Japanese Taiko Fusion band, Zero TaiKo, and the Darkness to Light song written by Dan Mackenzie and sung by 30 local children ages 8 to 10. There will be a live auction of luxury items and travel packages.
According to the Daily Journal, the 2006 Voice of Courage award will also be given out to Amy Berg for her, â€œcritically acclaimed documentary â€œDeliver Us from Evil.â€ A reporter for CBS and then CNN, Berg spent four years investigating pedophiliac priests and her resultant film is the story of a priest who openly admits to having molested hundreds of boys and girls. Volvo of North America will be presented the Corporate Award by CNNâ€™s Greg Alba for its generosity in underwriting the 2006 Prevent-a-thon for Darkness to Light.â€
The purpose of the event that has raised over $1 million dollars over the past three years is to educate adults to prevent, recognize and react responsibly to child sexual abuse.
