The Sun Lakes Wonderland of Lights was a success. Bidding started from Dec. 1 to 15, 2020. An auction was conducted by Caring Transitions at CTBIDS.com. Each Christmas tree for sale at auction was identified by the name of the business, organization, or group. Single donors had the option of using their name or remaining anonymous. A donation will be made to The Perfect Place, located at 23914 S. Alma School Road, Chandler, AZ 85248. The Perfect Place is a 501(c)(3) non-profit adult day care where many of the participants have some degree of dementia. Here they can socialize and engage in recreational activities in a structured, safe environment while giving the caretakers a much-needed break.
