Update: “Magical Christmas Light Display” On Track to Raise $80,000 to Feed Hungry

December 16, 2010

Earlier this month I told you about the Severns-Pease Christmas Display, the 88,000-lights and music show that is simultaneously raising money to feed hungry people in the community and entertaining all who come to see it. Last year the neighbors behind the fundraising and food drive collected $54,000 between Thanksgiving weekend and New Year’s.

Dave Severns just announced that thus far they have collected $52,000 worth of food and money, as of December 15! Only half way through the season, and they are just shy of last year’s amount! Just $28,000 to go before they reach this year’s goal of $80,000, with about two and a half weeks to do get there. All the money and food goes to Second Harvest Food Bank of Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties.

If you live in the San Francisco Bay Area and haven’t seen the display yet, now is the time to visit. And bring a can of food to donate, some quarters for the snow machine, or a check.

You can follow their fundraising progress here, or by joining the display’s Facebook page.
