Cheerful, charity fundraiser lights up Fremont
For a fun and festive holiday display, Tri-City residents donÕt have very far to look. Twinkling lights and colorful cartoon characters of Crippsmas Place light up cold winter nights with their annual neighborhood display starting Saturday, December 14.
Planned and operated by neighbors and volunteers known as the Crippsmas Club, Crippsmas Place boasts over 60 decorated houses along Nicolet Avenue and in the cul-de-sacs of Asquith Place, Cripps Place, Wellington Place, and Nicolet Court in north Fremont. Not only is Crippsmas Place a cheerful holiday event, it is also a charity fundraiser supporting six local organizations.
Free candy canes are handed out on Wellington Place and cash donations accepted for Leukemia-Lymphoma Society, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, SAVE (Safe Alternatives to Violent Environments), HERS Breast Cancer Foundation, Kidango ÒGifts from the HeartÓ program (provides needy children with basics and toys), and Adopt an Angel (for children in Alameda CountyÕs Child Protective Services). Donations can also be made online at www.crippsmasplace.org.
