2016 Charity Partner Applications Due Feb. 26

The Festival of Lights was founded in 1993 as a 501(c)3 charity to raise money to fund the annual holiday lighting along Chandler Boulevard.  Fundraising activities are centered on two main events; the winetasting in the Spring and the "Kickoff Party" in Desert Foothills Park over Thanksgiving weekend. These events have been organized by a very substantial network of volunteers. Since 2000 FoL has partnered with local charities that assist us in our events and receive financial support from those events. We invite you to apply to be one of our 2016 partners. Emailed entries due Friday, February 26, 2016.

FOL Donates to Local Charities

fol charity checkThe Festival of Lights donated a total of $7,000 to the Kyrene Foundation and Y-OPAS as the beneficiaries of their 2015 charity partners. Y-OPAS, a program of the Ahwatukee Foothills Family YMCA, is a community effort offering free support services for the seniors of Ahwatukee to enable them to stay independent at home. The Kyrene Foundation's mission is to remove barriers to learning so that all students have the opportunity to excel in school. Funds raised help to support the Kyrene Family Resource Center which provides Kyrene families in need access to food, school clothing and supplies, enrichment scholarships and referral for emergency assistance.

Next Planning Committee Meeting - Tueday, Feb. 16, 6:30pm, Pecos Community Center

2007 16FOL events are planned completely by volunteers and are a great way to get to know other people in Ahwatukee while having a lot of fun too! Tasks are broken into smaller sub-committees so the time commitment is manageable and volunteers can use their own skills (ie. marketing, sponsorships, logistics, entertainment, volunteer management). Some people prefer for only work on the Kick-Off Party and some love to do the Winetasting, while others are involved in both - it's really up to you, but every little bit is appreciated!
