Prepare for Christmas…and help a student!

According to commercials, Christmas is “just around the corner.”  Yet, as I write this, it feels like it’s 100 degrees outside!

But we have good reason to consider Christmas in September–the upcoming Singing Christmas Tree!  This year marks the 82nd Annual Singing Christmas Tree and to commemorate that, we have commissioned a special Singing Christmas Tree ornament.  Belhaven’s Singing Christmas Tree is the first and oldest outdoor singing tree event in the country.  I have loved this project–I was a part of the Singing Christmas Tree for years!  Now I enjoy the excitement my children possess while watching the tree.  This ornament was fashioned after an actual picture of a Belhaven Singing Christmas Tree.



For a limited time, any gift of $82 or more to The Belhaven Fund for Student Scholarships will mean an ornament for your Christmas tree this holiday season.  Eighty-two alumni and friends celebrating the 82nd Singing Christmas Tree through an $82 gift to The Belhaven Fund for Student Scholarships could mean a semester of classes for a deserving student.  Plus, your gift will be tax deductible.*  To secure your Belhaven Singing Christmas Tree ornament, make your gift today through our online giving form or email Beth Whitney at

*Tax receipts will show the gift minus the cost of the ornament.
