Teddy Bear Christmas Land Breaks Records
Susan and Jay Trevisano presented a check for $26,132 to St. Patrick Center from donations they received from their annual Teddy Bear Land Christmas light display. For 17 years, the Trevisano family has dedicated funds collected from their extravagant light display to St. Patrick Center. With this check they have now donated more than $100,000 dollars to help people transform their lives out of homelessness.
The Trevisanos said they had hoped to raise $10,000 this year, as they were featured on the ABC television show The Great Christmas Light Fight, but never expected to nearly triple their usual contributions. The couple said publicity they received from local television coverage and traffic from Grant’s Farm’s Holiday Fun light display, which is near their home, was a significant reason for this year’s success. They also thanked the many St. Patrick Center volunteers who helped out each night.
