Christmas Tree Toss for Charity Returns to Bethlehem in Honor of Late Founder

Bizarre tree-throwing charity event to be held in Peter Kearns’ honor

 

***EDIT! Our rescheduled date is now 12/24 at 11 a.m. Please RSVP here***

The popular Bethlehem Christmas Toss for Charity will be held this year in memory of its late founder, Peter Kearns, on December 24 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 this summer, making this year’s event that much more important.

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

5 Ways Social Media Will Change in the Lehigh Valley in 2016

The Lehigh Valley is home to anywhere between 700,000 and 850,000 depending on your interpretation of where the valley begins and ends. Trust us, that’s not an argument you actually care to take up on social media. So, let’s just agree that it’s more than 700,000 and less than 900,000.

Regardless, it’s a lot of people. The Lehigh Valley is the largest growing area in the state and one of the largest on the East Coast. We’re totally popular and cool and it’s time to start acting like it.

This article isn’t about sentiments, but it’s time to start getting over the whole “The Lehigh Valley is boring” and “There aren’t any jobs” and “We need to go to NYC or Philly to find true innovation” examples.

Simply put, and with examples you can easily find yourself, the Lehigh Valley is an area that has every right to be on the cutting edge of social media innovation. So, that being said, here are a few ways you can expect social media in the area to change as we go through 2016 and beyond.
