Estrella De La Esperanza Campaign

Every year during the Holidays, the community gathers in a Spirit of unity and giving to continue a tradition known to many Latin-Americans as the Three King’s Day celebration. This three-part campaign starts in December with Arbolito Tree Lighting, the Three Kings’ Day Parade and the Estrella Gift Giving celebration. 

ARBOLITO (Tree Lighting)

An evening of sharing in traditional holiday songs (villancicos and agüinaldos), tree decorating, and holiday refreshments. At Arbolito, we launch the Estrellita Giving Campaign which engages the greater community throughout the month in the donating of toys, food, or funds to the organization.

We also select the Three Kings’ Day Parade prince and princess.
