CVEF, TSA, CVCCS and Meals on Wheels to Host Extraordinary Give Light Show

LANCASTER, Pa. –  Four local organizations are coming together on November 22 to put on the second-annual Extraordinary Give Light Show at Gerald G. Huesken Middle School.

Conestoga Valley Education Foundation (CVEF), Region 2 Technology Student Association (TSA), Conestoga Valley Christian Community Services (CVCCS) and Meals on Wheels are collaborating on the Light Show event that will be open to the community. The show will begin at 6:30 p.m. and run every twenty minutes until 8:30 p.m.

The light show is a preview of the TSA’s Holiday Light Show, which is produced each holiday season by students in the middle and high school. It will feature a mix of holiday music and pop music. Refreshments will also be available. Additionally, CVEF, CVCCS, TSA and Meals on Wheels will each have a table where they will be sharing information with attendees about their nonprofits and offering opportunities to contribute to the Extraordinary Give.

This year, CVEF is seeking to raise the funds necessary to outfit four new elementary STEM labs, one at each elementary school in honor of Bev Breniser. Breniser was an elementary teacher and principal in CVSD at Leola Elementary and Penn Johns Elementary for many years. She also served as the Executive Director of CVEF for 13 years.

Admission to the show is free, though donations are encouraged as part of the Extraordinary Give. The Light Show will take place in the parking lot of the middle school, while CVEF, TSA, CVCCS and Meals on Wheels will each have an information table located just inside the middle school. There will also be a display about how CVEF grants are being used for the elementary STEM initiatives. 

Additionally, CVEF will have a station set up Funck’s in Leola from 2:30 to 7:30 p.m., where visitors can donate to the Extraordinary Give and learn more about the foundation’s work. 

“This event was hit with the community last year, and we’re truly excited to get the wider community together again for such a great cause,” said Dr. Gerald G. Huesken, CVEF executive director. “We hope we see everyone out there supporting the Extraordinary Give and these nonprofits that aid the CV community.”
