Realities For Children hosted their 22nd Annual NightLights Tree Lighting Ceremony on Sunday, December 1. The one-hour program included live music from Fort Collins band HoldFast, Emma Marie and Ridgeview Classical School’s Madrigal Singers. Masters of Ceremony from Retro 102.5 welcomed over 500 guests to the celebration with free warm soup, hot cocoa, homemade cookies and a visit from Santa. The evening culminated with the lighting of the 50’ tree, which has been upgraded and completely redesigned. Each light on the tree represents a $100 donation by a community member to help take a child out of the darkness of abuse, and light sponsorships continue to be sought to reach the 2019 NightLights goal of raising $250,000. More information is available at
