Looking for Christmas lights? Try the sparkling Deerfield neighborhood in Plano. One house to look for among the many decorated for the holidays is the Gordon Lights “Welcome Christmas” home display at 4665 Quincy Lane off Ohio Drive, just north of Legacy and east of Preston Road. Once on Quincy, turn on your radio to 95.7 FM.
Gordon Lights collects money, gift cards and other donations on behalf of Operation Homefront and raised $5,000 last year. To see the light shows with music, click on http://gordonlights.com
To see the Deerfield neighborhood in lights and on video, please click on http://deerfieldplano.org,
Better yet, load up the family and drive over to Deerfield but go see the lights before the weekend because the neighborhood attracts big lines of cars during the holidays.
Message from the Gordons
“GordonLights, of course with the help of all its very generous visitors, raised over $5,000 in 2010 for Operation Homefront! Thank you very much for participating in this donation-raiser. When added to the amounts raised in previous years, that brings our grand total to over $17,000 dollars raised to date.
Let’s see what we can accomplish together this year!”
Fabian and Ellen Gordon
