Make-A-Wish Foundation to Host Festive Holiday Party at Green's Car Collection in Orwigsburg

In the spirit of holiday cheer and generosity, Green's Car Collection in Orwigsburg is set to host the annual Make-A-Wish Christmas Party on December 4th from 5:00 PM to 9:00 PM. 

The event aims to raise funds to fulfill wish granting for Make-A-Wish children, bringing joy and magic to the lives of those facing critical illnesses.

This year's celebration promises to be extra special, with the spotlight on Bob Green's impressive car collection. 

Notably, the event will showcase the iconic General Lee, a vehicle made famous by the classic TV series "The Dukes of Hazzard." The General Lee on display is not just any car; it has been autographed by the original cast members, adding a unique touch to the festivities.  The vehicle is owned by Jeff Bowers of Pottsville.

Among the autographs gracing the vehicle are those of John Schneider (Bo Duke), Tom Wopat (Luke Duke), Catherine Bach (Daisy Duke), and Ben Jones (Cooter). Attendees will have the opportunity to admire this piece of television history up close.

To be part of this heartwarming event, attendees can secure their spots with an admission fee of $70 per person in advance or $75 at the door. The admission includes $25 worth of silent auction tickets, granting access to an array of exciting items up for bid. In addition to the auctions, guests will be treated to an open bar and delectable food offerings.

Carmelo’s Roman Delight has generously donated the culinary delights for the evening, ensuring a savory experience for all attendees. The open bar, on the other hand, is made possible through the kind contribution of Yuengling Brewery and the law offices of Fanelli, Evans & Patel.

The silent and live auctions will be a highlight of the evening, providing attendees with the opportunity to bid on exclusive items while contributing to the Make-A-Wish Foundation's mission. All proceeds from the event will directly support the foundation's efforts to grant life-changing wishes for children facing critical illnesses.

Join the community in spreading joy and making a difference this holiday season by participating in the Make-A-Wish Christmas Party at Green's Car Collection.
