The Annual Summit Luminary Fund Project, which began 35 years ago and has grown into a successful community effort, has raised over $77,000 for local charities this year. About 30,000 luminaries were purchased in an effort to line the streets of Summit on December 24th with a gorgeous glow.
Since the inception of the Summit Luminary Fund, Lois Schneider Realtor has been the underwriter of this magical event. “We are proud to work with the Summit Luminary Fund and the non-profit beneficiaries that contribute so much to our town. At Lois Schneider Realtor we are committed to helping support their work. We’d like to thank Summit Luminary Fund President, Barbara Romano for her continued hard work and dedication, as well as all the area leaders and volunteers,” stated Karen Schneider, President of Lois Schneider Realtor.
