Weston Lights for Hope Raises Funds for Charity December 18
It’s almost time for Weston’s Lights for Hope, a beautiful hometown event that will take place on Sunday evening, December 18. The 18th is also Keith Richards’ birthday and also the final game of the 2022 World Cup. Don’t celebrate either of those two holidays? Well, come on out to see what’s twinkling around town, and help raise money for Hope and Comfort.
Weston’s Lights for Hope started in December 2020 in the middle of a long pandemic year. The self-guided tour of Weston’s holiday lights and decorations raises money for the 501c3 organization Hope and Comfort. Homeowners who wish to be on the tour are asked to donate $100 to have their house featured. General admission to get your guide to the
stars decorations is $50. You will also receive one vote for that amount. If you would like more votes, you can buy them for $20. Can I just say it? That makes me laugh. More money=more votes. Seems like it would be a bit fishy but it’s all for charity so who cares?
I don’t mean to put pressure on the desirable southside but the coveted northside area around Merriam Street is leveling up this year in terms of decorations. No sign of a Christmas dragon yet but I am hopeful. There are named-for-soccer-or-is-that-football stars prizes for certain categories…this confused me until I realized that the 18th is the day of the men’s World Cup final. There are at least five people watching the Cup in Weston apparently.
