FORT WORTH (October 30, 2012) -- As the Holiday season approaches, Gift of Lights wants to bless several deserving families in the North Texas area with Gifts of Christmas. Each family selected will receive a complimentary family 4-Pack of tickets, including admission into Gift of Lights at Texas Motor Speedway, a gift card provided by Tom Thumb to purchase their holiday dinner, and a free color photo with Santa. In addition, the family's home exterior will be professionally decorated with lights, including a 24 lighted wreath.
"Christmas is the perfect time to reach out and bless those who need a little support and joy in their lives," said David Fred, CEO of Winterland, producer of Gift of Lights. "Maybe you know a single mom who is struggling to provide for her kids this holiday season. Or perhaps it's a teacher or coach who has really gone the extra mile. We want to hear their story so we might be a special blessing to them."
