Holiday Lights and Bows Campaign

We endeavor to improve our downtown with beautiful new LED lights and bows for the holiday season.  We continue to upgrade the nostalgic ambiance in downtown Grass Valley. Using LED lighting is a long term investment:  they use energy more efficiently in many applications and costs pennies to run per day.  The lights are durable as well as energy efficient, and will take less time and money to maintain as the years go on.
We invite you to help us make downtown beautiful and make a heritage donation.
Benefits: Sponsors will be listed on our GVDA website and thanked during our Cornish Christmas events.  Everyone reaps the benefits of the beautification of our town.  The investment in the durable and energy efficient lights are a long term investment.
Every bit helps.  Thank you for your donation!
