Portola Tree Lighting


Old town Portola will have the Renegade Light Parade where anyone can decorate their vehicle and participate. The Open Air Marketplace with crafters, hot coco for the kids and hot toddies for the adults, baked goods and food. Santa and Mrs. Clause will be giving gift bags to the children with a golden ticket for the raffle. Then the children will have the choice to pick out a present. We will have music and Carolers, a bon fire and the Tree Lighting Ceremony to ring in the Holiday Cheer.


Dear Community Member,

We are asking for donations from merchants, non-profits, service organizations and the community to help to make this event a success.  In 2019 we started the “Golden Ticket” drawing for the children of Portola and outlying areas.  It was such a huge success that we’re bringing it back for this year.  As you know, COVID, prohibited us from having this event in 2020.  We will have sanitation stations and will be taking suggested precautions for all of our attendees.


What is the “Golden Ticket” drawing?

Each child is given a goody bag from Santa that contains items and a “Golden Ticket”.

With the help of their parents, they put their name and phone # on the ticket and become eligible to be chosen in the drawing. Must be present to win.


Thanks to our generous community, they are able to select a new item ( toy, backpack, bikes, trikes, skateboards, puzzles, games, etc).  All items are brand new and valued at over $25.00.

We don’t “sell” raffle tickets, the tickets are 100% free.  This is such a special event for local families!


In 2019 we had over 30 gifts donated or purchased with donations.  Please consider donating to this worthwhile cause.  We’d like to get to 50 items this year!


Your donation is 100% tax deductible.  Checks can be made out to The Lost Sierra Foundation, a 501-C3 non-profit.  Donations can be made at the Chamber office at the corner of Hwy 70 & 89.  M-F 10-3.  You can also mail them to : LSCC P.O. Box 1043  Blairsden, CA  96103


We will provide you with a receipt and our tax I.D. #.
