THOMAS COUNTY, GA (WALB) –Hundreds of people are expected to fill Thomas County Central High School's stadium for a special candlelight vigil Saturday night.

The vigil starts at 5 PM and will honor lost classmates, faculty, and staff of the school.

Organizers say the event is free and open to the public. Programs and candles will be provided and a special song performed by the late Eric King, class of 1985, will be played through the loudspeakers.

"The recording was actually recorded a few months before he passed away and we are including that," says Rhonda Stamps, a co-founder of the "Lost Classmates of Thomas County Central High School" Facebook Page. "And I have his sister Kim King Hayes with me today and I just appreciate the family letting me use that recording tomorrow."

Organizers will also accept donations for a special fund to help children of recently deceased classmates have a better Christmas.

For more information on the candlelight vigil, visit the "Lost Classmates of Thomas County Central High School" Facebook Page. The group also encourages people to post photos of lost TCCHS loved ones and welcomes donations for future events.
