The Annual Summit Luminary Fund Project began 33 years ago and has grown into a successful community effort that raised over $63,000 for local charities this past year. Over 30,000 luminaries purchased by homeowners lined the streets of Summit on December 25th with a gorgeous glow. This beautiful sight, and the spirit of community that it represents, makes Summit a special place to live.
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.
