For the past 29 years, the annual Mother's Day Truck Convoy benefiting Make-A-Wish has become a beloved tradition in Lancaster County. This 500+ truck Convoy viewed by 25,000 roadside fans also hosts a giant carnival with games, live auction, food, vendors, etc. that welcomes 7,000 people on site at the Burle Business Park in Lancaster. The Convoy's goal is to raise $500,000 in 2018 which will provide the funds to grant roughly 70% of the wishes in our area.
The Convoy Committee is looking at adding some new, fun, creative people to our team. Committee members find a specific place to contribute that is best for them, in addition to sharing ideas and resources to benefit the overall effort.
Areas to serve include outreaching drivers, securing new sponsors, product sales, games, clowns, food, auction, publicity, mascots, traffic & parking, set-up, videography and more!
The Convoy Committee meets the first Tuesday evening of the month from 6:00pm – 7:30pm inside the IU13 Conference Center at the Burle Business Park in Lancaster. Meeting dates are Nov 7, Jan 9, Feb 6, Mar 6, April 3, May 1. This year’s 29th Annual Convoy is Mother’s Day, May 13, 2018.
