Last season: More than 3000 area youth sat on Santa’s lap! • Sponsor hosted four FREE Community Nights
• Sponsor hosted two very special Nights of the Torches
The Celebration of Lights is a collaboration of many area individuals, organizations and businesses, making this a bona fide community holiday celebration. We are thrilled to continue the tradition of spectacularly lit holiday displays. The committee begins the three-week-long task of hanging lights & placing displays on November 1. Visitors receive $2.00 off of the normal admission cost by donating a non-perishable food item. Food pantries community-wide, scheduled by United Way, benefit from Celebration of Lights; another truly good reason to celebrate 11 years of holiday magic!
Some of the pantries that benefit from Celebration of Lights are: Oshkosh Area Community Pantry • Omro Community Food Pantry Emmanuel United Church of Christ • Father Carr’s Food Bank - Salvation Army • St. Jude the Apostle People’s Pantry
His Church, World Outreach Center • Lutheran Pantry - Plus the pantries at Christine Ann and Cerebral Palsy of Mideast WI
Each year, Toys 4 Tots & the Oshkosh Humane Society have benefited from similarly arranged special nights at the Celebration of Lights.
