Celebrating its 26th year of raising awareness and funds for the Make-A-Wish foundation, the Mother’s Day Truck Convoy is slated for Sunday, May 10, from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Burle Industries at 1000 New Holland Avenue in Lancaster, Pa. will host the event.
Back in 1990, a 12-year-old named Matt wished to ride in a truck and speak with his sister on a CB radio. Approximately 40 trucks showed up to grant Matt his wish. This year, more than 250 trucks are expected to participate in the Mother’s Day Convoy.
Food and drinks, including chicken BBQ, will be served while patrons enjoy live music, games, Obie the Clown and a live auction. This year’s auction includes such items as hand-made quilts, a music box, paintings and items hand-carved by Carl Wade, one of the convoy drivers.
For drivers wishing to participate in the convoy or for more information, call the Lancaster office at 717-283-4872 or visit the website here.
