2nd Annual Holiday Home & Business Outdoor Lighting Contest

Across different faiths and cultures, light is a symbol of hope, new beginnings, family and community.  This is especially true as we come to the Holiday Season which is celebrated by lights, as well as by giving and sharing.


The Green Team celebrates the holiday season by raising money for local charities, while at the same time recognizing the beauty and joy of homes whose decorations light up our communities. Photos of homes in Orange and Sussex Counties, decorated in the spirit of the season, will be taken and placed on Voting for the top three homes in each county will take place in January of 2018 by a committee made up of representatives from the community.


The Green Team reaches out to local businesses, professionals and individuals in Orange and Sussex Counties to sponsor the contest by making donations directly to the chosen charities.


By sharing in the beauty and generosity of the season, The Green Team hopes to Light Up the Holidays and bring our communities even closer together!

Charity Beneficiaries

Green Team’s Warwick and Vernon offices have each chosen a local charity to raise money for:


  • The Warwick office has selected  Warwick Playground Dreams,  a non-profit organization dedicated to ensuring that children of all abilities will have access to playground components that will allow them to play together in a safe and inclusive environment. The playground will foster children’s creative spirit and encourage free play that is necessary for both physical and cognitive development. The end result will be a community space that Warwick can be proud of and all families can enjoy for years to come.
  • The Vernon office has selected the Vernon Township Senior Center.  The Center, located in the municipal building, provides seniors with a friendly, comfortable gathering place, offering lots of activities.  Currently these include Zumba, shuffleboard, ceramics, line dancing, daily crocheting/knitting, Wii bowling and pool! Seniors can join in a card game, watch a DVD, log onto one of the Center’s computers, or take part in an educational program, or just make new friends!
