It was a night of remembrance for victims of domestic violence.

Monday night’s vigil, sponsored by the Samaritan House, was held at town center in Virginia Beach.

Organizers hope the vigil helps educate people about domestic violence here in Hampton Roads and across the country.

Mayors from Chesapeake and Virginia Beach were both in attendance showing their support.

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
