Take a child out of the darkness of abuse
Tree Lighting Celebration | Sunday, December 1, 2019 | 6 - 7pm
First Presbyterian Church, 531 S. College Ave, Fort Collins
Every holiday season the big blue NightLights tree located in the courtyard at First Presbyterian Church, on the corner of Mulberry & College in Fort Collins, lights up the night bringing awareness to the issues of child abuse and neglect and letting the children impacted know they are not alone.
Now that the tree has been lit, it will continue to stand through the end of the year to continue to raise awareness. NightLights is the largest fundraising campaign of Realities For Children, running from November 1 thru December 31 each year, so there's still time to join us by sponsoring a light on the tree. The goal for the 2019 campaign is an ambitious $250,000, 100% of which will go directly to meeting the needs of children in our community who have been abused, neglected or are at-risk.
Stop by to see the brand new NightLights Tree and its choreographed holiday light & music performance at the to of the hour every evening from 5-9pm through 12/31.
