Bundle up and bring your family to the 8th Annual Holiday Lights Run and Charity Auction! Due to such an overwhelming response and interest in contributing to the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh, we're expecting more participants than ever before. We're excited to announce that this year's run will be hosted at Nova Place concourse to comfortably accommodate all of us. A big thank you to our venue sponsors Faros Properties, Nova Place and Union Fitness for generously donating their space!
Enjoy the best lights in the city by running or walking the specially selected two, four, or six mile route. Some of the sites include the tree at Point State Park, the PPG Wintergarden, the Nativity at Steel Plaza and the Holiday Village in Market Square. This year we're excited to welcome Eric Burnett from Fireside Events, LLC as our emcee. Before the run, be sure to bid on the amazing assortment of raffle prizes generously donated by our vendors, community partners and local businesses. Each raffle ticket is only $1!
If that's not enough excitement, our friends from Feetures have generously offered to give away free socks to the first 100 people at the event. Be sure to get there early!
This year's Holiday Lights Run and Charity Auction will benefit the victims of the tragedy at the Tree of Life Synagogue. The funds collected will go to the Fund for the Victims of Terror and are earmarked for the psychological services, support for families, general services, reconstruction, additional security throughout the community, medical bills, as well as counseling and other services that may prove necessary for victims and first responders during their recovery.
