LAKE WALES, Fla. - Standing in unity with the families of the horrific Orlando shooting, Bok Tower Gardens will toll the bells on Sunday, June 19th at 12:00pm with 49 strikes, each toll representing the life of a victim. Carillon towers across the globe are using this symbolic act to honor the lives taken during this unthinkable tragedy and Bok Tower Gardens is joining this effort in solidarity and respect for the victims, their families and the survivors still recovering.
