TREE OF LIGHTS PROGRAM
The Tree of Lights is an annual fundraiser sponsored by the United States Marines Youth Foundation to benefit the Youth Physical Fitness Program of the Marine Corps League. Each year, tree lights in various colors are sponsored by Marine Corps League Detachments and Auxiliary Units, Marines, Members of the greater Marine Corps Family and Friends of the United States Marines Youth Foundation. At the Tree Lighting Ceremony, held on Marine Corps Base Quantico, the lights are illuminated while General Alfred M. Gray, Chairman of the Board and 29th Commandant of the Marine Corps, reads the Scroll of Honor. The Scroll lists all who generously donated to the Tree of Lights.
There are three types and six levels of sponsorship opportunities through the Tree of Lights. Donations can be made: In Memory of, In Honor of, or as a Year-End Gift.
The Lights are available in the following colors:
|Red ($500)||Green ($50)|
|Gold ($250)||White ($25)|
|Blue ($100)||Clear ($10)|
As a sponsor, your name will be listed on the Scroll of Honor, which is unveiled during the Tree Lighting Ceremony and displayed at Marine Corps League National Headquarters throughout the year. The Scroll is also posted on the Foundation's website at www.marineyouthfoundation.org
