The first measurable snow of the season has officially arrived along with the meteorological start of winter. Candy Cane Lane in West Allis is aglow with holiday lights and seasonal displays to delight kids of all ages. For 25 years the incredible neighbors in the area bounded by 92nd and 96th Street and Oklahoma and Manitoba have delighted visitors from throughout the metro area with the sights and sounds of the holidays offering a million dollar Gift of Hope through Research. We invited you to take a ride down Candy Cane Lane.
For many, it will be a ride down ‘”Memory Lane'” for the children who can now cruise the lane themselves. We promise that you won’t be disappointed since the neighbors have lit up the night in fine fashion to celebrate 25 years of Hope. The children of all ages and two generations join the MACC Fund in saying ‘”thanks'” to the wonderful neighbors on Candy Cane Lane. Last year the nickels, dimes, quarter and currency added up to an $85,000 colorful Gift of Hope. All that is missing to top that great total in this 25th Silver Anniversary Year is you and your ‘”silver.'” We invite you to experience Candy Cane Lane each night. We once again thank the neighbors, generous donors, volunteers and celebrity guests for making this holiday season a candy-coated, brightly colored Gift of Hope to children with cancer and blood disorders.
