The Angel Tree Lighting Ceremony at Ballantyne Village is open to everyone. Guests will receive a special Believe bell to join in the lighting ceremony, and ring in the season of giving. Free cookies and hot beverages will be available, as well as an ornament making station for all families and guests. Guests will be treated to the sounds of a local brass band provided by the Salvation Army.
The sounds and sights of the season will make this a great family outing, and a new Ballantyne Village tradition, said Ed Camp, General Manager/Marketing Manager of Ballantyne Village.
We are honored to be a part of such an extraordinary experience here in Charlotte, said Camp. This time of year is so magical; every family should be able to share in the same excitement. For us, teaming up with the Salvation Army to help make that a reality for local families, we couldnt ask for more.
The Salvation Armys Angel Tree program provides new clothing or toys for children of needy families through the support of donors. Angel Trees are decorated with numbered paper angel tags with the first name, age and gender of a child in need of presents. Contributors remove one or more tags from the tree and purchase appropriate gifts for the child or children described on the tags.Look for details at two displays:one located near Rush Espresso and one inside the 3H Shoppes.
