Merry Christmas! $24,000+ for The Great Lisbon FARMERS FEED THE HUNGRY Christmas Parade!
It's Spring! Spring allows us to get outside and celebrate the beauty that surrounds us. While reflecting upon our many blessings brought to us all year long, The Great Lisbon FARMERS FEED THE HUNGRY Christmas Parade committee is extremely grateful to everyone who supports the parade!
Santa was particularly good to us this past Christmas, shattering fundraising goals again! Thanks to our sponsors and to our community participants (who rode and drove in the rain), the 2019 Parade raised over $24,000 – quite the “rainy day fund!” A very special thanks goes to our “Super Santa” Tony Locos, whose 2019 Preakness Party raised $3,400 for the parade.
The Great Lisbon FARMERS FEED THE HUNGRY Christmas Parade is a charitable event hosted by the Howard County Farm Bureau. Usually, the funds are presented to our beneficiaries at the annual spring HCFB dinner in April. Since Maryland is under a State of Emergency due to COVID-19, the Parade Committee believes our beneficiaries could use the funds NOW, instead of waiting until the dinner.
Thanks to you, our beneficiaries will receive:
In addition to this, the two food banks received over 3,100 pounds of non-perishable foods!
Since its inception in 2011, the Parade has now raised over $104,000.
