“This is done as a show of solidarity, support, honor, and remembrance to those who have lost their lives as a result of this 100% preventable crime,” St. Louis County Sheriff’s officials wrote.

St. Louis County Sheriff’s leaders will also light their own candle at 7 p.m.

This year’s event is held in conjunction with MADD’s National Day of Remembrance.
