We are over one-third of ($1,580) the way to our $4,500 GOAL to establish a WINTER LIGHTS PROGRAM for the International 
Park (LED for giant park hedges).



Our cross-border community is inspirational. Americans and Canadians have endured the pandemic together and found great solace in their peace park. So let's come together to celebrate the re-opening of our borders!  

Let's light up our glorious park during the dark winter months to bring joy and cheer to all who pass by as they travel between countries this holiday season and for many to come.
 
The Winter Lights program will illuminate the gardens surrounding the base of the Peace Arch with COMMERCIAL LED lighting annually during December and January.
 
Our first step is to raise $4,500 to fund lights for the giant hedges surrounding the Peace Arch. An additional $7,000 will allow us to add lighted American and Canadian flags, and another $8,000 beyond that will purchase lights to wrap the two giant trees near the arch, leading to an overall funding goal of $19,500.

Help us reach our GOAL of Winter Lights for the Peace Arch!        

Donate $10, $20, $50 or more!   Your donation, large or small, will make a difference!


 
Let's celebrate that PEACE is a gift for All Seasons!
