Bethlehem Christmas Tree Toss for Charity Returns on December 18 at 11 a.m. with In-Person Throwing

A Lehigh Valley tradition triumphantly returns to the stage on December 18

BETHLEHEM, PA (December 13, 2021) – The fun and festive Bethlehem Christmas Toss for Charity will be held on Saturday, December 18 at 11 a.m. at More Miles Automotive, 1458 Stefko Blvd., Bethlehem, PA.

The original event was first held in 2002 when then Meineke Car Care owner Peter Kearns challenged Mike DeCrosta, currently of More Miles Automotive, to a contest. The resulting yearly tradition became something of a bizarre, but wildly popular, way to celebrate the holiday season. Peter Kearns passed away in 2016.

The event originally ended in 2013 after Kearns retired, but was revived in 2015 at the behest of fans and former participants. 

“Pete is the one who came up with this wonderful idea and made sure that it was always in the spirit of raising money for charity,” DeCrosta said. “We want to continue to honor him by holding the event in his name.”

More Miles Automotive, in conjunction with Lehigh Valley with Love Media, will host the ‘Peter Kearns Memorial Christmas Tree Toss’ with proceeds going to Turning Point of the Lehigh Valley. The public is encouraged to attend and throw Christmas trees for distance in an effort to be this year’s champion! Children will also have a small tree to toss.  There will also be small giveaways and refreshments. 

Last year’s event was held virtually due to the pandemic

Donations of $5 per throw are encouraged. However, donations of all amounts are accepted and can be made in person at the event or by mailing a donation payable to Turning Point of the Lehigh Valley ℅ More Miles Automotive 1458 Stefko Blvd., Bethlehem, PA. 

Donations can also be made at this link: www.turningpointlv.org/get-involved/donate/
