“Everyone is invited to celebrate the official kick-off to the holiday season at our 12th annual holiday lighting event,” said Kathi Herrmann, Marketing Director. “Lights Up is a magical evening with an amazing laser light show, live music and of course, the lighting of our spectacular Christmas tree. There is no other evening like it!”
For the third year now, Towne Centre has partnered with a local charitable organization to host a special fundraiser. This year’s beneficiary will be the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, whose mission is to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease, and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. Leukemia & Lymphoma Society volunteers will be selling foam glow sticks and blinky rings so all event guests can also Light Up!
Lights Up will be emceed by Y102.5’s Brian Cleary who will be giving away prizes from Towne Centre stores, such as Athleta, Burtons Grill, Claire’s, Grimaldi’s Pizzeria, J. Jill. Lizard Thicket Boutique, Soft Surroundings, Southern Tide by M. Dumas & Sons, Stella Nova Spa Salon and more.
