Legacy of Light Gala



Story and photography by Eric Lusk

The 2018 Legacy of Light Gala was recently held at Middle Tennessee Christian School. The keynote speaker for the evening was actress, producer, and New York Times’ bestselling author, Candace Cameron Bure. Known worldwide from her role as “D.J. Tanner” on the iconic family sitcom “Full House”, Candace spoke about the challenges of balancing her family, faith and continuing to flourish in the entertainment industry.

The evening began in the beautifully transformed MTCS Miller Gym with a reserved seat dinner provided by Peter D’s Catering. There Mrs. Bure candidly answered questions from students and selected others about her life. Following dinner, the engagement moved to the larger sports facility, where Bure formally spoke about her experiences growing up as a child-star, her role in the reprised “Fuller House”, Hallmark Channel movies, and her soon to be New York Times
best selling book “Kind is the New Classy: the Power of Living Graciously”.
