Tree of Lights 2020

Celebrate and Honor a special friend or cherished loved one this holiday season.

The Manatee County Family YMCA Tree of Lights is a community-wide fundraising project held during the holiday season. Lights may be sponsored in memory of a loved one, in honor of a family member, friend, or business associate, or as a year-end gift to the Y.

The Tree of Lights will be located outside of our Manatee Y branches and will be illuminated for the entire community to enjoy during the holiday season.

The tree lighting will take place on December 16th at 7 pm. We will have a small reception in the parking lots of the branches, following social distancing guidelines.

Can’t make it or not comfortable coming out? No worries! The lighting of the Tree of Lights will be live-streamed, letting you enjoy this feel-good holiday event from the comfort of your home.
