Guests enjoyed a free concert performed by the Philadelphia Boys Choir before Benjamin Franklin and Betsy Ross counted down the lighting of the credit union’s 40-foot Christmas tree, which features more than 35,000 LED lights. The tree lighting triggered the evening’s grand finale, a fireworks show set to the music of the HBO series John Adams.

The event included a check presentation of $170,000 to Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. To date, the credit union’s Kids-N-Hope Foundation has raised more than $1.6 million.

Guests brought donations of canned and dry foods as admission to the event to support Philabundance. The credit union also raised more than $2,300 for CHOP through on-site donations.

Throughout December, members of the community are invited to stroll the American Heritage campus, 2060 Red Lion Road, to enjoy the lights and tree. ••
