December 1 :: First Presbyterian Church Front Lawn :: Fort Collins
Nearly 800 families and individuals gathered to brighten the lives of children in our community and to kick off the holiday season at the 20th Annual Realities for Children Charities NightLights event. Musical performances from Wendy Woo, CSU Mainstreet Acapella and Emma Marie filled the night air as attendees enjoyed hot cocoa, soup and cookies. The evening culminated with the lighting of the one-of-a-kind, 50-foot tree adorned with over 30,000 blue LED lights. More than $150,000 was raised and will benefit Realities for Children and their programs to help abused, neglected, and at-risk children in Larimer County through the Realities for Children Emergency Fund, partnering agency support and youth activities.
