Christmas Future, is a term derived from a ghostly character in Charles Dickens' play, A Christmas Carol. We work, we strive, and we hopefully thrive as we all endeavor to provide for our families so that our Christmas Futures are blessed with joyful memories of family and friends around a festive dinner table that includes holiday cheer, gifts and love for each other.
Allow yourself a moment to reflect on your life, both your past and future holidays. Remember Aunt Gladys pinching your cheeks, the smell of pine needles, hot chocolate, the laughter in your house, and think about your upcoming holiday and all the new memories that will be created.
Through this year's Holiday Giving campaign, you can help someone less fortunate achieve their Christmas Future and allow new memories to blossom. Our goal is to raise $10,000 to provide for 130 children through our partnership with Directions For Youth & Families. Your donation to the 2022 Holiday Giving campaign will provide each student an Amazon Gift Card, a warm blanket and a variety of Christmas goodies.
For every $10 you donate, you will receive an entry into the 2022 Holiday Spirits Raffle. This year we will have the Holiday Spirits Barrel and also a second and third prize for the raffle. The winning tickets will be drawn Sunday, December 11 at Chili Bowl VIII at Studio 35.
Regardless of whether you choose to donate or not, we hope that your upcoming Holidays and all your Christmas Futures are filled with love and happiness.
As always, thank you for your continued support!
