Riding high… Make-A-Wish celebrates annual truck convoy
Make-A-Wish of Philadelphia and the Susquehanna Valley will host the 23rd Annual Mother’s Day Truck Convoy and Family Fun Festival May 13 from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Burle Business Park.
Day-long activities for children and adults of all ages begin at 8:30 a.m. with the famous Make-A-Wish auction, which contains more than 200 items from local businesses. The auction promises to include gifts for mom as well as items the entire family will enjoy.
Visitors can look forward to food, games, live entertainment and the largest gathering of clowns in the Susquehanna Valley. New this year is a BINGO tent, which will be available all day. Admission is free.
Over 300 trucks will depart from Burle Business Park at 1:30 p.m. and travel from Route 30 to Route 222, taking the Brownstown exit through Akron and into Ephrata, turning onto State Street and returning to Burle Business Park via Route 322.
Free shuttle bus transportation will be provided from the parking lots of Lancaster Catholic High School and Grandview Plaza on New Holland Avenue.
"We are so thankful to the community for their continued support of the Mother’s Day Truck Convoy," said Randy Etzweiler, convoy chair. "Since the inception of the Convoy, more than 1,500 wishes have been granted. This event is a vital fundraising event for our organization and ensures that we can continue to grant wishes to children all over the Susquehanna Valley."
Convoy proceeds benefit Make-A-Wish and local children in the Susquehanna Valley. More than 330 trucks participated in the 2011 Convoy, and the event raised more than $323,000.
The Lancaster Barnstormers will be honoring Make-A-Wish at the May 13 game, which will start at 6:05 p.m. Come to Burle Business Park in the morning to meet some of the Barnstormer players along with Cylo, and then head to the game that evening. Use the promotional code "CONVOY" to purchase tickets for the Mother’s Day game and $4 of the ticket will be donated to Make-A-Wish.

The Burle Business Park is located on New Holland Avenue in Lancaster. More CONVOY, page A16
