Lancaster, PA…The community is invited to support Make-A-Wish, the area’s largest wish granting organization serving local children, during the annual Meter Buster Christmas Display at the home of Karen and Thom Miller, 49 Longfellow Drive in Lancaster, PA. Running from November 25 through January 1, the display will feature a winter wonderland of over 30,000 colored bulbs and holiday scenes. Now in its 5th year benefiting Make-A-Wish, the community may view the display and make a donation via a donation box on the couple’s property. Over the past four years the Christmas Display has raised some $10,407 for Make-A-Wish and has helped fulfill wishes for area children. Dennis Heron, President & CEO of Make-A-Wish commented about the fundraiser, “Make-A-Wish is delighted to include the Miller family among its generous and loyal friends making wishes come true for kids whose lives have been traumatized by serious illnesses. Thanks to this very special couple who work tirelessly on this amazing light show, we are able to touch the lives of sick children living in our community.” For more information about the Meter Buster Christmas Display, please visit: https://www.facebook.com/Meter-Buster-Christmas-Display-190756176605/
Make-A-Wish grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. According to a 2011 U.S. study of wish impact, most health professionals surveyed believe a wish-come-true has positive impacts on the health of children. Kids say wishes give them renewed strength to fight their illness, and their parents say these experiences help strengthen the entire family.

With the help of generous donors and more than 27,000 volunteers, Make-A-Wish grants a wish somewhere in the country every 37 minutes.
