December 1 :: First Presbyterian Church :: Fort Collins

Realities for Children kicked off December by brightening the streets of downtown Fort Collins—as well as the lives of abused, neglected and at-risk children—with a 50-foot steel tree at the 21st annual Realities for Children NightLights event and fundraiser. Todd Harding and Brian Gary with K99’s “Good Morning Guys” welcomed everyone to the highly anticipated tree-lighting celebration. The night was filled with warm food, festive music and a 33-pound chocolate Santa giveaway. The fundraising campaign will benefit more than 2,000 at-risk youth this month and provide support in the coming year to 34 nonprofit youth agencies in Larimer County.
