Non-profits shine at Hillside’s Night of Lights

Sunday's start to extended holiday shopping hours will raise money for local non-profit organizations

Hillside Centre is helping local non-profit groups get in the holiday spirit with its annual Night of Lights event.

More than 20,000 tickets to this Sunday’s event have been distributed to more than 70 non-profit groups. Hillside provides tickets to the non-profit organizations, who sell the tickets to the exclusive event for $5 and keep 100 per cent of the proceeds.

The Night of Lights event marks the beginning of extended holiday shopping hours at Hillside, with the shopping centre open to ticket holders only from 6 to 9:30 p.m. Nov. 20.

“There is always tremendous interest in the event. This year we ran out of ticket in October,” said Hillside marketing director Michele Paget. “We are delighted to host the event again this year – our 16th year. Over the 15 years that Hillside has hosted the event, literally hundreds of thousands of dollars have been raised for non-profit groups in our community.”

Besides getting a head start on your Christmas shopping, Sunday’s Night of Lights gives shoppers a chance to win one of more than 100 door prizes including a trip for four to Disneyland, a diamond ring or numerous gift cards. Hillside Centre offers more than 100 shops and services, including the newly opened Canadian Tire.
