November Update

Twenty-one years ago, we hung our first Lighted Christmas Ball in Greensboro, NC. Since then, countless neighbors and friends have picked up the torch and run with it. Today there are hundreds of yards lit up with thousands of homemade lighted balls. We’ve been fortunate to tell the story everywhere from the TEDx stage to The Today Show. But what is most fun is that neighbors are still getting together every year to build community and help those who need it most. To date, through our community's generous donations and countless hours from volunteers, the Lighted Christmas Ball display has raised over $250,000 and 90,000 lbs of food; the equivalent of 1,790,000 meals for our homeless and hungry friends.

To that end, we’d like to invite you to THREE Lighted Christmas Ball related events in the coming weeks. See below for details and links to RSVP!
