Bridgeton NJ Hosting Tree Lighting in Honor of Dulce Alavez at Park Where She Vanished
Friends, family, and members of the Bridgeton community will gather next month for a tree lighting ceremony in honor of missing child Dulce Alavez.
The event will take place Saturday, December 18th at 4:30 p.m. at Bridgeton City Park, NJ.com reports.
The park is the last place Dulce, then 5 years old, was seen on September 16, 2019 when she vanished during a family outing.
As her family holds onto hope, authorities continue to pursue the whereabouts of the missing little girl, recently releasing an age-progression photo of what Dulce would look like as a 7-year-old, in hopes a new lead would surface. There also remains a $75,000 reward for information.
On December 18th, a big oak tree on the playground at Bridgeton City Park, known as “Dulce’s tree,” will be illuminated, along with a small Christmas tree. The theme will reportedly be 'Frozen', after Dulce's favorite Disney movie.
The 'Dulce's Silent Night' ceremony will take place at 25 Mayor Aiken Drive in Bridgeton.
