December 7 | 1pm - 9pm
12 Maple Avenue., Sussex
Tree Lighting – 6pm
About 10,000 Lights
Help us light up the trees outside of AX! Every 1$ donation lights 1 bulb on the trees standing high outside the front entrance of AX, our community arts and culture centre on Maple Avenue, right in the heart of downtown. As part of this campaign, AX will also give a portion of the proceeds to the Sussex Sharing Club’s annual food bank Christmas Drive. Whether you light 1 or 100 bulbs, you’ll be helping to raise money for local charities!
This years event is taking place on December 7th, in conjunction with Old Tyme Christmas. AX will be hosting a number of activities in-house from 1pm-9pm, including the launch of our new AX Boutique. Join us for crafts, raffles, refreshments and a shopping extravaganza, and stop by to see us at the train station from 5pm-9pm as well! It’s easy to give – you can make a donation online and receive an instant charitable tax receipt. Donations can also be made in-person at AX. 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 holiday decor.
