Landon’s Light Show raises over $5,000
In December, for the fifth year, the Town of Stratford could have been confused with Las Vegas, as Landon Holmes provided his magical holiday light show consisting of 30,000 colourful lights.
Throughout the holiday season, right up until New Year’s Day, hundreds of spectators visited Landon’s parents’ home to enjoy his famous light show and hear the strains of their favourite Christmas tunes.
This favourite holiday tradition stemmed from Landon’s wish to honour the memory of a close neighbour who died after suffering a stroke.
Each year, the extravaganza attracts hundreds of spectators who come to listen to their favorite Christmas tunes and marvel at the magical light display.
As part of the light and music display, Landon places donation boxes on the property to encourage those enjoying the show to donate to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
When this year’s contents were tallied, Landon proudly presented a cheque to the foundation’s fund development coordinator, Crystal Cobb for $5,106.21!
Cobb is appreciative of his work.
“With this year’s cheque, this special young man has raised more than $30,000 overall for our work to create more survivors on PEI.
Landon’s light show has proven to be a wonderful fundraising event for our organization and we are very grateful to Landon for his commitment and to those individuals and businesses who generously support his efforts,” she says.
All funds raised by Landon’s Light Show continue to help the Heart and Stroke Foundation in the fulfillment of their mission to prevent disease, save lives and promote recovery.
