During the Holiday Season, McCaffrey was proud to sponsor and host its 2nd annual McCaffrey Tree Lighting event to benefit Holiday TreeChildren’s Hospital Central California.  A beautifully lit Christmas tree on the corner of Herndon and Van Ness, stood in front of the McCaffrey corporate office.  The tree was extraordinarily illuminated and the community joined in as each light represented a $10 donation to Children’s Hospital as well as a story or a memory of a loved one or child.  With your help McCaffrey raised $19,455 to support the children whom are treated at the Hospital everyday.

The McCaffrey Tree Lighting fundraiser was complete with a Tree Lighting ceremony for the Patient lights treecommunity to attend on December, 1st. Emceed by ABC 30’s Christine Parks, the evening featured live musical performances by children’s choirs from local schools, and Santa Claus came from the North Pole for a special appearance. Carter William’s, a cardiac patient from Children’s Hospital, was able flip the “switch” to light the 35 foot Christmas tree with Santa Claus by her side.

The McCaffrey Homes tree shined brightly holding thousands of colorful lights that were bright and cheerful, which were enjoyed by thousands in our community throughout the Holiday Season.
