Nearly $30,000 Raised for Local Charities
Christmas is a time when most people’s thoughts turn to giving. Christmas at Clipper Magazine Stadium hosted Christmas Tree Lane presented by BCF Group for community non-profits that support vital and worthwhile causes.
Ninety-five local businesses and families sponsored trees to raise funds to assist in the effort! Visitors were invited to vote on their favorite tree or charity by purchasing $1 donation tickets to place in ballot boxes by each tree. The event was a huge success raising $19,513 with 100 percent of the proceeds going to the non-profits represented. The outstanding support confirms that the people of Lancaster County are committed to giving back!
The Lancaster Barnstormers would like to thank everyone who participated in this year’s fundraiser during Christmas at Clipper Magazine Stadium presented by Faulkner Infiniti of Mechanicsburg held on the weekends 11/30 through 12/23. We especially want to thank our Christmas Tree Sponsors for their overwhelming support, as well as all the staff that worked during this holiday season to make our event a success!
The Lancaster Barnstormers are adding $10,000 to this amount, bringing the total raised to nearly $30K! The Christmas Tree with the most votes receives an additional $5,000, the 2nd runner up receives an additional $3,000 and the 3rd runner up receives an additional $2,000.
