LIGHTING UP ARCADIA CHRISTMAS HOUSE

$3,545 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 129 people in 3 months
For more than 30 years we have decorated our home for the holidays. Our display costs us no less than 10K to put up and take down each year. Our costs for self storage units runs us 6K a year, the electric bill is about 1,500.00 plus many other expenses. We do get some donations but not near enough to cover the ever increasing costs. In order to be able to afford doing what we do we started selling cups of Hot Cocoa and Christmas Cookies. We have never made a profit but it does help. In 30 years never a complaint, then new neighbors several doors away move in last year and complained to the city of Phoenix Az. about the traffic. City could not stop us from decorating but they did tell us we were in violation of zoning because of the Cocoa sales. I said ok I will give it away, they said we could not do that. Thinking about it I say why not ?  is sent that what we do on halloween ? If we were to decorate this year they wanted us to hire 5 to 6 adults and put them in reflective vests to walk the streets in my neighborhood and direct traffic and make sure no driveways were blocked. So for this year we are not decorating. We have started this go fund me page to raise money for two things. One to hire an attorney to see if we can fight the city on this. Two if we can raise enough money so next year we can decorate and not have to rely on Cocoa sales just donations. Your support means we can decorate again next year to delight young and old. We would be so grateful if we can get enough funds to make our street light up. They say you cannot fight city hall but we are going to try. Thank You
