In its inaugural year, Light Up The Valley brought together over 500 attendees to honor the top 40 Change Makers in our region who have consistently strived to make the Wyoming Valley a brighter place, through their efforts in diversity, equity, and inclusion; volunteerism; or innovation, as well as additional efforts that improve the overall quality of life in the Wyoming Valley.
