The 27th annual C. Edward McCracken Festival of Lights is sure to be “spectacular.” In fact, as part of our holiday decorating celebration, we’ll be raffling off two tickets to the Radio City Music Hall Christmas Spectacular show in December. Proceeds from the raffle and event sponsorships will benefit the Transform Project, a fundraiser for the renovation of Newton Medical Center’s 1 Hussey Patient Unit. The Festival of Lights takes place on Saturday, November 10 with children’s activities at 4:30pm, a donor reception at 5:30pm and the tree lighting and fireworks at 6:30pm.
