Here is one of the most important images we'll take all year. We don't often take selfies, but when we do, it's with $8,550 worth of toys donated by 165 families that are being forwarded to Cradle Beach. They will distribute the toys to local families in need. To understand the scale of the image, the truck would not fit in any of the sets from previous years and you can barely see it! THANK YOU for those who participated this year, braved the cold, drove from afar, showed up on time, if not early and brought those smiling faces. You're all Rock Stars in my book! We hope you enjoyed the experience, love the images and had as much fun as we did. Thank you to the residents and the other business owners of our Historic Youngstown NY & Lewiston, NY. Thank you to those who shared our event online or in person & told friends and family. YOU made this possible and it's because of YOU we can grow this event more and more every year! The larger the event, the bigger and more elaborate we can make our Christmas scenes. So lets keep this going. We have some incredible ideas for the next few years. Please tell your family and friends so they can join in on the fun! We'll do our part if you keep doing yours. Again, from the bottom of our hearts. Thank you!!! - Neal & Danielle Urbanwww.nealurban.com
