“Reunion Tower Over The Top NYE 2020” To Benefit Children’s HealthSM, Launches Reunion Tower’s Shine Bright Sweepstakes
DALLAS – Dec. 2, 2020 – Reunion Tower and Hunt Realty Investments, Inc. are collaborating to bring a Texas-sized New Year’s Eve event to Dallas for the fifth year in a row. The only 360-degree, panoramic fireworks spectacular in the Central time zone will light up the Dallas sky with more than 4,000 pyrotechnic special effects and 259 LED lights starting at 11:59 p.m. CDT on Tuesday, Dec. 31, 2020.
For the second year, the event will be “Championed by SMU” as a community partner for the event.
This year, the fireworks spectacular will benefit Children’s Health via the newly formed Reunion Tower NYE Foundation. The Reunion Tower NYE Foundation was established in 2020 to raise funds to support and showcase a local North Texas non-profit organization. For more than 100 years, Children’s Health has served the Dallas community through high-quality patient care, advocacy, education and preventative care. The Foundation has named Children’s Health as its 2020 beneficiary because of the outstanding health care heroes who have exemplified Dallas’ “can do” spirit during this difficult year. Funds raised from this event will support the vital medical care Children’s Health provides to youth, as well as its groundbreaking medical research, and will honor the critical work of local healthcare workers during 2020. To make a donation to support Children’s Health, please visit https://reuniontower.com/donate-childrens-health/.
“Children’s Health is honored to be the first beneficiary of the Reunion Tower NYE Foundation,” said Brent Christopher, President of Children’s Medical Center Foundation. “The Reunion Tower Over The Top NYE fireworks show will allow many to ring in the new year, safely, with hope and joy – two values Children’s Health continues to bring to our patients each day as we work to make life better for children in North Texas.”
