Join us for a magical night of lights, music, and a raffle with incredible prizes from outdoor brands and local businesses you love. 100% of the raffle ticket sales will go to protecting the Post Oak as the tree is in duress. Come at 6pm for music by Ella Bertram. Bring people you love to join in this celebration of lights and our incredible community. We look forward to seeing you under the twinkling lights on November 3rd. 

A huge thanks to Arbor Carolina, an incredible, locally owned tree service company. Read about the amazing work they do below.

"We are arborists, and we practice arboriculture. Arboriculture, or urban tree care is an important emerging discipline aimed at understanding and providing the best care possible for the trees we share our living spaces with, from the roots to the top of the canopy. Trees and their care is not just our profession, but also our passion, and so we strive to stay current on all exciting new developments and techniques that benefit trees and properties."
"We specialize in quiet, controlled work, whether pruning, repairing, planting or removing trees. We leave a very soft ‘footprint’ and are especially suited to working in tight places where heavy equipment cannot go, and we take exceptional care to ensure that other trees, shrubs, turf and garden plantings are not damaged during work."

Much thanks also to Carr Mill, the Town of Carrboro, The Chapel Hill Chamber of CommerceWCHL The Hill, and all the amazing Carrboro local businesses that help make this event possible. Thanks to some of our favorite outdoor brands: Smartwool, See Kai Run and Outdoor Research for sponsoring the event to raise funds to save the tree with Arbor Carolina.
