CHICO, Calif. - A Chico family is spreading some Christmas cheer and raising money to grant wishes for children with critical illnesses.
Action News Now reporter Kristian Lopez was live at the Christmas display and spoke to the organizers.
The owner of the house, Kari tiffany, says they have been decking out their house for years, it all started with her husband's love of Christmas.
It turned into a community event and she decided to use it as a way to raise money for the Make a Wish Foundation.
Eight years ago she met Brenden Brewer when he stopped by to check out her Christmas display. He was diagnosed with cortical dysplasia when he was younger and received a free trip to Disneyland when he was five, through the make a wish foundation.
Brenden, now a college student, stops by the display every year and even has his own ornament on their make-a-wish Christmas tree.
Brendan says "It feels great knowing that people are there helping the kids that need help and have wishes that they want to visit or places they wanna go or things they wanna do and it's great seeing people care for these kids so much, hopefully, it gives kids hope that have been through all the stuff that I've been through. "
Kari Tiffany had this to say about Brenden "it's pretty cool he's a good kid and its good to see him come back."
The Tiffany family's Christmas event is open to the public. They will have hot cocoa, cookies, and Santa will be here. It's free but donations are welcome. All the proceeds go directly to the Make a Wish Foundation.
It runs from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. tonight at 578 Cimarron Drive in Chico.
