10,000 Lights at AX

Help light up the town and support our community at the same time with our 2nd annual 10,000 Lights at AX campaign!

 

Every $1 donation lights 1 bulb at AX, right in the heart of downtown.

Whether you light 1 or 100 bulbs, you’ll be helping to raise money for two local charities.

AX’s charitable mission is to foster a vibrant and creative hub in our community, and funds raised will go to supporting free and affordable programming for everyone, including youth and seniors’ activities like pottery and painting classes, exhibitions, literary readings, and more.

As part of our 10,000 Lights at AX campaign, AX will also give a portion of the proceeds to the Sussex Sharing Club’s annual food bank Christmas drive. 

It’s easy to give – you can make your donation online and receive an instant charitable tax receipt. Donations can also be made in-person at AX, and at supportive businesses throughout the downtown core – just look for the 10,000 Lights at AX campaign donation boxes.

When you make a donation, we’ll also recognize your gift by putting your name on a colourful paper lightbulb, which we’ll then put on display as part of our indoor holiday decor.


Tree lighting and caroling event

Please join us for holiday fun during the 10,000 Lights at AX tree-lighting ceremony on December 21, 6:30 p.m. at AX, 12 Maple Ave. We’ll gather in the gallery, do some caroling, celebrate the winter solstice and the shift towards the light, and help make the season a little brighter. 

Non-perishable food items can be dropped off at the event for donation to the Sussex Sharing Club food bank.


Thanks so much to our sponsors, the Sussex Downtown Business Association.
