Christmas Celebration

The inaugural RennerVation Foundation Christmas Celebration, held on December 9, 2023, in Virginia City, Nevada, was a magical affair that was part of the town’s Christmas on the Comstock December events.

In a heartwarming initiative, the RennerVation Foundation, led by founder Jeremy Renner, delivered the enchantment of Christmas to 120 deserving youth. The inaugural RennerVation Christmas Celebration, held on December 9, 2023, in Virginia City, Nevada, was a magical affair that was part of the town’s Christmas on the Comstock December events.

The RennerVation Foundation collaborated with Big Brothers & Big Sisters of Reno and the State of Nevada rural adoption program to carefully select 140 youths aged 3 to 17. Actor and philanthropist Jeremy Renner hosted this private event that was filled with cherished moments, including photos, a visit from Santa Claus, meet-and-greet opportunities, gifts, and prime viewing of the town’s Parade of Lights and Magical Fireworks Celebration. 

Renner expressed his heartfelt sentiment, stating “Our whole desire was to love on these kids and to let them know that people do care and that you are valued.” He emphasized the Foundation’s commitment to building on this initial event, with the intention of making it an annual tradition. Renner added, “We want every child to feel empowered to follow their dreams, and that their story is just beginning.”

The event, strategically held in the historic rural community of Virginia City, Nevada aligns with the RennerVation Foundation’s mission to reach underserved communities. This community, with a population of approximately 900, is situated about 35 minutes southeast of Reno and is renowned for the historic Comstock Lode.
