Giving Back: The Lights of Oxford Park

The Ragan family

A special light display in Oxford Park, created by Senior Business Manager Christy Ragan and her family, is about more than the joy of the holiday season, it tells the story of a family giving back to Duke Children’s.

The Ragan family has always enjoyed decorating with outdoor lights during the holidays, but two years ago, Christy’s husband, Mike, was inspired to expand the display to include lights set to music. Because their first musical display in 2018 generated so much interest and offers of donations, they decided to give all proceeds from donations to Duke Children’s this year. Their three children have all been patients at Duke Children’s, and they wanted to give back.

The family hopes this is the first of many donations and plan to collect during the show each year to donate back to Duke Children’s!  You can follow the Ragans on Facebook at The Lights of Oxford Park, where they’ve posted videos of the lights and songs and will continue to post seasonal updates.
