You can help send a hospital worker and that worker’s family through the Winter in Wilmington Light Show.
The Grand, which is partnering with the Riverfront Development Corp., the city of Wilmington and Light Action Inc. to produce a drive-through holiday light show at Frawley Stadium, is asking for donations that will be turned into tickets for hospital workers at ChrstianaCares, Nemours, St. Francis, Bayhealth and Beebe hospitals.
“In the spirit of the idea that we are all in this together, the Board’s staff and volunteers of the Grand Opera House have decided to coalesce our efforts around building awareness for the need of the community to support our frontline health care workers,” said Brian DiSabatino, chairman of the board.
The Grand on Thursday started a Facebook page to raise $12,000 for tickets to be given to those hospitals. By Friday, it was nearly halfway to its goal.
While tickets through the attracton are $25, donors can give any amount, DiSabatino said.
“They can donate $2.50 or they can donate $250,” he said. “What’s more important is that we as a community rally behind the people who have been under stress in an already difficult job, and we want to share some joy with them.”
