Thanks to Friends of the Alley, Buckham Alley will now have permanent decorative lighting installed. Nice job, everybody!

We first posted this story back in March, when the non-profit organization was raising funds to install the lighting. The campaign ended just a few days ago, and the organization successfully raised $50,000 which will be matched by state grants.

The fundraiser began with a large donation from Diplomat Pharmacy. After that, donations came in from other states as far away as California. A fundraiser was also held at the infamous Torch Bar & Grill.

What a beautiful addition to our downtown area! So excited for this summer!!
