The big blue tree once again sits on the corner of College Avenue and Mulberry Street.

The 23rd annual Realties for Children NightLights Tree became illuminated for the season during a special Dec. 1 event — hosted by your favorite Townsquare Media DJ's, Maxx, Dave Jensen and myself.

The tree does more than bring Christmas cheer to the Choice City. The NightLights tree is a fundraiser for Realities for Children, the local non profit that provides, services, programs and support for thousands of Northern Colorado youth annually.

A light on the tree can be sponsored for a $100 donation. An anonymous donor will match up to $10,000 with each donation made by Dec. 8 for Colorado Gives Day.

Here's a look at the 2020 lighting event, which was live streamed to the public this year. Phots were taken by the talented Craig Vollmer.
