On the evenings of Dec. 18-19, Corsair Robotics 2612 sold concessions at a Waterford neighborhood light show that raised money for the Michigan Humane Society. Cookies were baked fresh and hot chocolate was brewed hot. Hundreds flocked from all around to watch the amazing display.
Mr. Kevin Nagy, the owner and programmer of this light show, was interviewed by Channel 4 News about the light show and our team selling holiday treats: https://m.facebook.com/MyLightShow/videos/1100144276703454/
On our first night of selling, business was slow because the roads were icy causing accidents in the nearby areas. We capped off the night at only $150. But the next night, we had more volunteers, as well as an early start due to high demand. We made a huge recovery in sales, bringing the grand total to $425. We even received a generous $100 donation!
Overall, Corsairs 2612 had a lot of fun, grew closer as a team, and raised money for a good cause.
Even though we are done selling treats for the season, the light show will continue to run through Sunday, Jan. 3. We encourage everyone in the area who hasn't already seen the show to head over to 2651 Cherokee Hills Circle, Waterford, MI 48328, tune into 100.7 FM, and enjoy the spectacular show. Donations can be left in the secure box at the curb. Check out another video of the light show: https://twitter.com/CorsairRobotics/status/678390462747578369
We're taking a break and resting up over the holidays because FRC build season starts soon. Look for our next blog on Tuesday, Jan. 12.
Happy holidays from Corsair Robotics 2612: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lcMH1oO0EoM
