For the third consecutive year, Tenaya Lodge will honor a local child battling illness at its tree lighting. Patrick Luna, a six-year-old student of Madera Unified School District who is undergoing treatment for Leukemia, has been chosen to be this year’s guest of honor and will help light Tenaya’s 35-foot tall, sustainably harvested Douglas Fir holiday tree— the largest in the Central Valley. Following the tree-lighting he and his family will enjoy a holiday sleepover hosted by Tenaya Lodge.

A representative from Madera Unified School District will highlight the importance of the school district’s “We Believe” campaign, which encourages children to dream big and inspires students like Luna to believe in their ability to overcome great odds and achieve great things.

Santa will make an appearance and pose for photos with children.        

The holiday tree lighting ceremony marks the start of the holiday season at Tenaya Lodge. Families are invited to attend and enjoy festive food, drink and entertainment. To celebrate this season of joy and giving, Tenaya Lodge encourages guests to bring a new, unwrapped toy for the kids at Valley Children’s Hospital. Items requested include unopened toys for infants through teens, gift cards for popular retailers such as Target and Old Navy, board games, craft sets and new clothing.
