One of the many fundraisers going on at this year’s Christmas in Davidson festival will be a bake sale organized by two Community School of Davidson sixth graders who wanted to help a family from their church whose 2-year-old son, Declan Fitzgerald, was recently diagnosed with Mitochondrial Disease.
Bailey Settar and Emma Karant, both of Davidson, will be offering home-baked items for a donation in a fundraiser they’re calling “Declan’s Dream.” All proceeds will go directly to Declan’s care. Read the full story

This holiday season you can help a Davidson family in need again through the “Angel Tree” at Davidson Town Hall. The tree went up this week in the lobby, hung with ornaments bearing descriptions of local residents and their holiday wishes. To help, just stop by, grab an ornament, and return a wrapped gift.
The tree has been organized by the Davidson police and fire departments, which annually team up to help families in need in Davidson and the surrounding area.
This year, they’re adding another element: A raffle for prizes including dinners at the Port City Club and Brickhouse Tavern, a Jim Kerr watercolor print, and a foursome of golf at River Run. Read the full story
