Lighting the Blessing Tree
The Blessing Tree tradition continues, and we have a new location where it will shine brightly for all. This visual embodiment of hope will be at Be the Light Pocket Park (downtown Bettendorf, across from Adel Wholesale and QCA Pools & Spas). Our 32-foot tree will be visible from both sides of the river and this new location will allow the community to visit at any time to honor, remember and celebrate. We have so much to be thankful for and we share our blessings to give hope to the families and individuals in the community living with cancer or to remember those who are no longer here with us.
Support the services at Gilda’s Club and sponsor a light, bow, or ornament in memory of, in celebration of, or in gratitude for a special person in your life. We will feature each name on our Blessing Tree website page and a Holiday Blessing tribute card will be sent to the individual or family letting them know someone has honored them.
Join us for cocoa, cookies, conversation and carols from 6pm to 7pm on December 5th at Be the Light Pocket Park. We will read the names of loved ones recognized at 6:15 pm, illuminate the Blessing Tree at 6:30pm that night and it will remain lit through January 1st. There is convenient parking surrounding the Blessing Tree (side street parking or at Adel Wholesale parking lot) so bring your family and friends down and create a new tradition.
Proceeds benefit Gilda’s Club Quad Cities programs and services that are available to anyone in our community that has been impacted by cancer. All programs and services are available at NO COST to those that participate because of your generosity and shows that Community is Stronger than Cancer!
