A Florida display that features 89-acres of holiday lights is assisting critically-ill kids this winter.

The sets feature a huge mushroom, a huge toy box, and an ice-cream spaceship. All these illuminate Kissimmee’s night sky as included in ‘Night of a Million Lights’—a show composed more than 3.2 million lights.

A non-profit resort, Give Kids The World, which offers vacations for sick children as well as their families, opened this great display in November; proceeds here will be used in granting the wishes of children as soon as the village is reopened in January 2021.

CEO and President of Give Kids The World, Pamela Landwirth said:

It’s just taking advantage of all of the whimsical things we have and bringing them to life with color and lights.

A tunnel of 150-foot, a whole mini-golf course, and a gingerbread arch, are part of the lit up 45 villas donated by the Walt Disney World Resort.

This charity, which was launched back in 1986, usually serves more than 8,000 families from more than 70 countries and all 50 states yearly.

After shutting their doors temporarily back in March due to the Coronavirus, they started thinking of different ways to put smiles on people’s faces.

Since it opened, almost all night of the 89-acres light event has been sold out.

According to projections, the show should gross over $3 million in charitable proceeds, with 90 cents of each dollar being used in fulfilling the wishes of children that are critically ill children during their presence in the Village. 

You can get more more information on the non-profit’s website. This show will continue until 3rd January, 2021. 

We look forward to sharing some holiday joy with the community, while making it possible for future wish children to have their wishes fulfilled.
