(Harrisburg) -- Nearly 80 names are slated to be added to the DUI Victims' Memorial Garden in Harrisburg this afternoon.

The nonprofit Pennsylvania DUI Association plans to hold a ceremony to remember those who lost their lives at the hands of an impaired driver in the commonwealth this year. The names of the victims will be read aloud and a tree will be lit as a special memorial.

Currently, more than 2,000 bricks are engraved with victims names in the Memorial Garden, which was dedicated in October, 2003. It's Pennsylvania's first statewide DUI Victims Memorial Garden.

The remembrance event gets underway at 5:00 p.m. today  at 2413 North Front Street.
