Xmas spirit still alive and kicking — and at a discount
Price cut for last weekend of Fantasy of Lights
For those of you not quite ready to let go of the Christmas spirit, you are in luck.
Beginning tonight and continuing through Saturday, Blue Jacket’s Fantasy of Lights will have a discounted rate. Instead of $10 per car to travel by and under the lights adorning Franke Park — with stars out hopefully to add to the decor — $5 will get you in.
The price cut is in celebration of Blue Jacket — a non-profit which provides education, training and opportunities for disadvantaged job seekers — reaching its goal of 20,000 vehicles coming to the display.
The funds raised this year will help the organization’s Career Academy training and job placement.
“We will likely serve 300 individuals in 2017 largely because of this fundraiser that was given to us in 2015,” Blue Jacket executive director Tony Hudson said in a press release. “We could not be more excited about the exposure for our mission and the support from the Fort Wayne community.”
The event ends Saturday
