Lights of Kindess

Washoe County Students from different schools, High School Choir and Theater groups, Sparks locally owned and operated businesses and Legends merchants got creative this year for the "Lights of Kindness" holiday event.

Organized by the non-profit organization called Think Kindness, this event is raising money that will stay with Reno and Sparks charities. The folks behind this organization was able to get over 75 trees donated from The Dolan Automotive Group and  100% of money raised will be kept and donated to local charities.

Each tree has been uniquely and beautifully decorated and is ready for your vote. In order to vote, a $5.00 ticket must be purchased. As mentioned earlier, 100% of the proceeds go toward local charities. At the conclusion of the voting, up to 20 trees will go up for auction. The winners of each tree will be given the option of keeping the tree or donating it to a family in need.

So if you are looking for an inexpensive way to contribute to those less fortunate this holiday season, drive on over to the Outlets at Legends at the Sparks Marina.

December 10 - 15, 2010 at the Legends Mall. Check out the "Holiday Forest Of Trees" and vote for your favorite. For $5.00 vote, why not spend $10 and vote for your top two favorites.

The Toy Story themed tree got my vote. (Toy Story 3 is amazing if you haven't seen it yet!) If more traditional trees are more your style, don't worry there are at least 74 other trees to view and vote on. With so many tress to look at  be sure to plan your day with enough time to vote and shop!

Legends at the Sparks Marina is a wonderful outdoor mall in Sparks, Nevada. If you haven't had the chance to see one of Sparks' newests places to shop, now is a great time to head on over and get your holiday shopping done!
