What is Stony Brook Shines for Others
Stony Brook Shines for Others has officially ended for 2021. We look forward to sharing how much was raised this year in the coming weeks.
We will see you next year!
Stony Brook Shines for Others is a neighborhood event that takes place each winter. We raise money for children's charities right here in WNY. Lights come on Thanksgiving night and shine nightly through January 1st. Typically, most lights come on at dusk and remain on until 9:30-10 pm.
Our neighborhood, consisting of 9 streets, decorate their houses and all the trees that line the streets. The neighborhood literally turns into a “winter wonderland” of sorts. Neighbors, local businesses and visitors then donate their own money to a children’s based charity each year.
If you want to come see the lights for yourself, click on the “Where To Find Us” tab for a map! There are multiple entrances into the neighborhood. We strongly encourage you to visit on days that are less popular due to traffic congestion, such as Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.
Never in a million years would we have thought we would see so many people coming to enjoy our neighborhood and donating to the charity of choice. The positive messages from people who have visited each year are truly heartwarming and what it is all about.
Thanks for making Stony Brook Shine so brightly everyone.
