SPOKANE, Wash. - As the holidays near we are all anxious for time at home with our loved ones, and sharing traditions each family holds near and dear. But that is simply not the reality for everyone.
While Sacred Heart Children's Hospital will never be home, Kxly4's Extreme Team will do their part to make Christmas a little more bearable for families.
Four days, thousand of lights, and a whole lot of man power was poured into making Cowley Park a child's Christmas dream, during their family's worst nightmare.
The Extreme Team, Avista, and the City of Spokane all worked together to make the idea come to life last year.
The expressions on each child's face, showed what a little light can do in the darkest of times.
In just a few weeks, the transformation of Cowley Park will be underway for the second year in a row. And in true Extreme Team fashion, we are going even bigger and brighter.
Winterglow Spectacular will be joining forces with the Extreme Team this year to bring with them an enchanted forest.
Area Ace Hardware stores will donate another $5,000 in lights for the big project. A lot of money, time, and lights go into this project, but the end result is priceless.
All of the “Making Spirits Bright” fun starts next week, and we'll be flipping the switch on November 22.
