Channel 9′s Christian Bruey was given a sneak peek at their upcoming “Night of a Million Lights” event.

“The Night of a Million Lights is an opportunity to allow the community to come in and experience the whimsy and the magic of Give Kids the World Village. We have lit up practically every corner of the village,” says GKTW CEO Pamela Lindworth.

Unfortunately, the doors have been closed at the village since mid-March.

“I’ll never forget that last family that checked out on March 18...It was like somebody kicked you in the stomach,” Lindworth recalls.

Now, they’re back on the grounds preparing for the Night of a Million Lights event.

The brainchild of the village’s director of development, Steven Amos, the event runs from November 13 through January 3.

“When I look at these lights, I’m just blown away every single day of what you can do with the Christmas lights and what the impact is going to be for Give Kids the World Next Year,” Amos says.
