Gift of Light, Gift of Love

November 1-December 31, 2021

20th Annual Gift of Light, Gift of Love Tree Lighting Celebration – Virtual Event – Starting November 26, 2021.

For 19 years, the tree lighting celebration has served to start the holiday season for area families and kick off our charity's largest annual fundraiser - Gift of Light, Gift of Love. The tradition continues this year with an even bigger, brighter, sparkling Christmas tree and lawn display at Ronald McDonald House. It's an electrical spectacle you won't want to miss! Be sure to drive by during your annual holiday light tour to see the display in person. Gather your family to watch the virtual lighting celebration, along with stellar musical performances, from the comfort and warmth of your home beginning Thanksgiving 2021.

We are celebrating 23 plus years of service to the Four State Area and Keeping Families Close!
