Developers of the new Water Street District in Downtown Naperville are partnering with Naperville Sunrise Rotary to make the holidays even brighter in downtown Naperville this year. Marquette Companies, along with Ryan Hill Realty are the Presenting Sponsors of Naper Lights, a pedestrian-friendly holiday light display scheduled to light up Central Park on weekends from Thanksgiving until New Year’s Day. The display, a fundraiser of Naperville Sunrise Rotary, will feature several giant holiday light displays, decorated light poles and trees as well as a lighted arched entry leading from the Washington Street entrance to the park. The lighted gazebo will offer hot chocolate to warm visitors as they stroll around the park. The event is free to the public. Free-will donations to Naperville Sunrise Rotary will be welcomed.
“We love the holidays and we’re excited to help brighten residents’ celebration and enhance the experience of visiting, shopping and dining in downtown Naperville,” says Nick Ryan, Managing Partner of Marquette Companies. “To be able to help Sunrise Rotary raise money to help young people who will be our future leaders is icing on the cake.”
Naper Lights 2013 is a pilot program of Naperville Sunrise Rotary. Founding Sponsors will be recognized over the first three years of the event, scheduled to grow in 2014. “We needed to get going this going this year as we plan an even larger event for the future,” says Sunrise Rotary President John Nania. “These displays are very successful and exciting in other parts of the country and we see the experience growing to a major presence in the coming years. As a club, we have many concerns about the health, safety, education and mentorship of young people and this project will help support local, County and international projects over time.”
