A York County family is using an annual holiday tradition to help raise money for wounded service members.
Marie Urich is a self-proclaimed "Christmas Fanatic" and has been decorating her home and property for more than 40 years. For the last seven years, she has invited the public to view her light display and make a donation to a charity of choice.
In two years, Urich has raised $4,000 for Pennsylvania Wounded Warriors, Inc. And this year, she hopes to generate an additional $2,000.
Her daughter, Christine Fike, said they will accept anywhere from five cents to five dollars.
"It goes towards these soldiers who have given everything to serve their country and they have come back wounded, and we don't want them to be forgotten -- especially this time of year," Fike said.
The display is located at 235 Krone Road in Lewisberry. It's open from 5:30 to 10:30 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday until December 31.
For the next three Saturdays, the family will offer free hot dogs and chicken corn soup with a donation, as well as bonfires and visits from Santa.
