A total of 11,047 cars, trucks, vans, buses, horse-drawn carriages and other vehicles drove through the 2013 Ritzy’s Fantasy of Lights. Admission fees plus generous visitors' extra donations resulted in estimated net proceeds of $141,824.

 

Many thanks!

Special thanks to everyone who attended, sponsored, or volunteered at Ritzy's Fantasy of Lights. Easter Seals is especially grateful to the many event visitors who gave extra donations at the ticket booth!

Since 1994, including this year, Ritzy’s Fantasy of Lights has raised net proceeds of approximately $2,676,700!

This year's event totals were announced Jan. 4 at Garvin Park, as dozens of volunteers from Teamsters Local 215, IBEW Local 16, and NECA enjoyed a thank-you lunch donated by the event’s main sponsor, G.D. Ritzy’s.  The volunteers spent the rest of the day dismantling the 62 elaborate light displays and transporting them to storage for safekeeping until next year’s event.

Major sponsors of Ritzy's Fantasy of Lights 2013 were Ritzy's, IBEW Local 16, NECA, Teamsters Local 215, WEHT Local, Local 7 WTVW, Evansville Courier & Press, Lamar Outdoor Advertising, 104.1FM WIKY, and 93.5 The Wolf.  Nightly security was donated by Security Enforcement, a division of Comaier Services.

Be a part of next year's event!
The 21st annual Ritzy's Fantasy of Lights is already in the planning stages.  It will open on Thanksgiving night—Nov. 27, 2014—and will run through January 1, 2015.  Companies, organizations, churches and families interested in sponsoring a light display in next year’s show are invited to contact Easter Seals online or call Easter Seals Director of Special Events, Laura Terhune, at 812-437-2627.
