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.
