Christmas for a Cause - Peoples Bank
This year Christmas for a Cause will be relocating to Heritage Village in Sioux Center. Christmas for a Cause is a free walk-through Christmas light display, sponsored by Peoples Bank of Sioux Center. The display will run from Friday, November 24, 2023, until Monday, January 1, 2024, from 5:00-10:00 PM each night.
“We appreciate the Heritage Village Board’s willingness and enthusiasm for Peoples Bank to move Christmas For A Cause to Heritage Village,” said Peoples Bank Sioux Center President Dale Vander Berg. “They have a great space and set up, and because of that, it opens more opportunities for us to expand this event.”

“This event allows us to embrace part of our Peoples Bank core values by enriching families and communities,” said Peoples Bank Sioux Center President Dale Vander Berg. “This is a free family-friendly event where everyone can enjoy the Christmas light displays at Heritage Village and have the opportunity to support Midwest Honor Flight.”
“We are grateful to have Peoples Bank of Sioux Center select Midwest Honor Flight to help sponsor future flights for our Veterans who are so deserving of this once-in-a-lifetime experience,” said Aaron Van Beek, CEO of Midwest Honor Flight. “This is a way to show our appreciation and say thank you to those who served, and we are grateful to all those who will donate in appreciation for our local military Veterans in such a generous way.”
