The Lawrence Sertoma Club on Wednesday presented checks for $5,000 to four community organizations. The money was raised from the drive-thru holiday light display, Lawrence Lights – Making Spirits Bright.

The event transforms the fields at Lawrence’s Youth Sports Complex into a whimsical wonderland.

The display returned for its second year in November 2022. Tickets were $20 per car, but Sertoma (SErvice TO MAnkind) also made scholarships available.

Lawrence Lights was a collaboration between the Lawrence Board of Realtors Community Foundation, Sertoma Club, and the Lawrence Parks and Recreation Department.

Checks for $5,000 were distributed to Heartland Community Health Center, Schiefelbusch Speech-Language-Hearing Clinic, Lawrence Schools Foundation and Just Food, according to Dee Bisel, who submitted this photo.
