Warm Your Heart – Donate to First Night

Like you, in this season of gratitude, we look forward to New Year’s Eve with great anticipation.  It is a most hopeful season, as we each take time to reflect on the past year and seek out the things within us that we can change for the better.

New Year’s resolutions speak to our most basic desires—in our personal lives, for our communities, and across the globe.  It’s the time that we strive to be the change that we wish to see in the world.

Our community’s celebration of First Night harnesses that positive energy and celebrates a new year full of wonder and possibilities.  Please come out this year to celebrate with us.  Gather with friends, declare your resolutions, and enjoy the dawn of a brand-new year.

Warm your hands at the Fire Barrels, then Warm Your Heart.
