Nelson 151 is kicking off its eighth-annual 12 Days of Christmas fundraiser on Monday, December 25.

Member organizations from the group come together each year to raise money for local charitable groups in Nelson County.

Since starting eight years ago, the organization has raised and donated more than $10,000 to the community.

From Christmas Day until January 5, each organization will host a day of giving to raise funds.

“This year we've decided to raise money on behalf of the Blue Ridge Medical Center, which performs important health care-based services for the Nelson community; specifically, serving the rural and underprivileged communities,” says Lindsay Dorrier III, the president of Nelson 151.

See below for a full list of participating organizations and which date each is hosting its day of giving.


Press Release from Nelson 151:

Nelson 151 will host its 8th Annual 12 Days of Christmas fundraiser beginning on December 25, 2017 and culminating on January 5, 2018 with a check presentation to this year’s donation recipient, Blue Ridge Medical Center (BRMC).

Nelson 151 members come together each year during the holiday season to raise funds for local charitable organizations and since the inception of the 12 Days of Christmas have collectively raised and donated over $10,000.

The community is invited to join in celebrating the holiday season while raising funds by visiting member locations on their chosen “Day of Giving” where a portion of the day’s sales will go towards the donation to BRMC.

“The 12 Days of Christmas provides an opportunity for each of our member businesses to give back to the community that has been so generous in their support. It is only fitting that we take time during the holidays to show appreciation. This year we are excited to pool our fundraising efforts and extend a really impactful donation towards the Blue Ridge Medical Center. We look forward to continuing a record of excellence in civic engagement and can’t wait to hand over a truly significant donation to Randy Pirtle and the good folks of the BRMC.” -Lindsay Dorrier III, Nelson 151 President
