The Nevada Humane Society facilities on Longley Lane are getting a total holiday makeover. Christmas Décor by Signature Landscapes has just finished installing over 10,000 lights on the building and trees in an effort to help kick off their 7th Annual Lights of Love community event.
Families are invited to join Nevada Humane Society this Saturday, December 7, for the first ever Lights of Love Holiday Tree Lighting! Featuring children from the Suzuki Music Association of Reno/Tahoe performing traditional holiday carols on violins, this family-friendly event is sure to warm your heart.
“We love to see our communities sparkling with colorful light and festive displays,” said Steven Fine of Christmas Decor. “What can be more joyous this time of year than the holidays coming alive with the magic of glittering lights while helping our animals find warm homes this winter?”
Live music begins at 4:30pm and UNR Wolf Pack Coach Brian Polian will light the tree at 5pm. Admission is free.
“This exciting event is a great way to kick off the holidays and raise awareness for homeless pets at the same time. As we feel especially connected to those we love around the holidays, our Lights of Love tree is being lit to bring light to those feelings,” said Kimberly Chandler, Communications Manager for Nevada Humane Society. “We also hope to celebrate those pets who are being adopted, and to reach people who are not familiar with our organization so that we may place even more pets into loving homes this holiday season.”
Lights of Love runs through January 1, featuring holiday lights in remembrance and honor of beloved pets. A light may be lit for a $10 donation, which benefits homeless pets at Nevada Humane Society.
