We’re Working to Keep the Lights on!

We couldn’t gather for the spring Beer and Wine Event and we’ve had to cancel this year’s Holiday Kickoff Party so we need your support to continue to present the Festival of Lights on Chandler Boulevard.

How can you help?

 

Any amount helps! Donors pledging $200 or more will receive a yard sign to proudly display their support of the Million White Lights. After you donate, you can pick up your sign at PostNet (4611 E Chandler Blvd. Ste 112, Phoenix) one week after your donation, beginning on September 15 during regular business hours (Monday-Friday between the hours of 9 and 5). Donors of $100 or more will be recognized here on the website and in social media, as well as in Ahwatukee Foothills News.

A few sponsorships are still available from $500 and up! Here is the form for more information.

 

Our Silent Auction will be offered online this year and is made possible with donations by local merchants. The online auction begins on November 11, so check back for more information. You will be able to browse and bid on items until November 28, 2020. Top bidders will be personally invited to pick up their merchandise at the FOLAZ office the first week of December 2020.
The online Gamified Wine Pull will be LIVE from November 11-28 with pickup available at the FOLAZ office (4435 E. Chandler Blvd. Ste 200, Phoenix) on Tuesday November 17, Thursday November 19, Tuesday November 24 and Tuesday December 1.
The “Reds” Wine Pull will feature random selections for $25 per play with all wines in the game with retail values of at least $25 value  (and some up to $100 or more!)

Our Story

The Ahwatukee Foothills Festival of Lights (FoL) was founded in 1995 as an Ahwatukee community initiative after the developer of the Foothills, Del Webb, discontinued promotional festive-season lighting along the Chandler Blvd medians.

Three women, residents of Ahwatukee, felt that the lights were a beautiful landmark and should be present each festive season. They established the FoL as a 501C3 charity to implement substantial community events to raise money and fund the annual lighting. A substantial network of energetic and dedicated volunteers has sustained the effort every year since then!

The Million White Lights that famously illuminate Chandler Boulevard from 24th Street to Desert Foothills Parkway stands as a remarkable example of community spirit. Through thick and thin, the organization has sustained and grown each year, frequently reinventing itself to refresh and maintain relevance.
