The Green Team will celebrate the 2017 holiday season with its second annual “Light Up the Holidays” contest to raise money for local charities while recognizing the beauty and joy of homes and businesses whose decorations light up the community. Last year, over $3,000 was raised for the Warwick Valley Humane Society. This year the contest will be expanded to include homes and businesses in both Orange and Sussex Counties.
The Green Team’s Warwick office will be raising money for Warwick Playground Dreams and the Vernon office will be raising money for the Vernon Township Senior Center. The Green Team will reach out to local businesses, professionals and individuals in Orange and Sussex Counties to sponsor the contest by making donations directly to their local charity.
Green Team committee members include Jennifer DiCostanzo, Tammy Scotto, Donna Roberts, Susan Wynn, Geoffrey Green, and Julianna Green in the Warwick office and Heidi Hyland, Joyce Rogers, Geoffrey Green, Keren Gonen, and Nancy Martin in the Vernon office.
Photos of homes and businesses decorated in the spirit of the season will be taken and placed on the Green Team website and Facebook page. Entries can be made by registering on the website at www.GreenTeamHQ.com, being nominated by a friend or neighbor, or being selected by members of the Green Team. Three winners in each county will be selected on Thurs., Jan. 11 by a committee made up of representatives from the community. The winners will be announced on the website on Fri., Jan. 12.
