Lights at Royal Garden Raises Nearly 10K For Charity

The Northern Lights Health Foundation is receiving a big donation thanks to a Christmas Light display.

The Lights at Royal Garden, a light show set up by the Tupper family at their house in Thickwood, put on their annual elaborate show every night over the holiday season.

The display collected $9,794 in support of the NLHF.

Over 15,000 residents took in the show, which is free for all to view but donations were accepted for charity.

“The generosity of this community never ceases to amaze me,” said Jon Tupper, co-creator of the Lights at Royal Garden.

“Not only did we double our fundraising goal of $5,000, we are also thrilled that so many residents across the region were able to enjoy a Covid-safe holiday event while many gatherings were canceled.”

“I would really like to extend my sincere thanks and appreciation to my neighbours, who graciously hosted so many residents looking for a fun and safe holiday activity, their kindness and patience truly reflects the Christmas spirit and the caring heart and soul of this region.”
