The High Point Holiday Party presented by Bethany Medical and The Lenny Peters Foundation is a gift to High Point from the Rotary Club of Furnitureland.   The mission of the party is to unite and support our community as we kick off the holiday season.  This is accomplished by putting on a full day of festivities that support High Point’s local small businesses and showcase all of the amazing things to do in High Point.   Thanks to our sponsors, all events are free and allow Furnitureland Rotary to raise money for local non-profit organizations that serve our community.

Furnitureland Rotary is so thankful to all of the partners and sponsors that help make the High Point Holiday Party possible.  Many organizations have stepped forward this year and asked to help, this includes but is not limited to: Visit High Point, the City of High Point, Food Lion, High Point Discovered and many more.
