Silver Star Transportation and Make-A-Wish Hudson Valley Illuminate Lives this Holiday Season

YONKERS, NEW YORK — Silver Star Transportation, a leading transportation provider serving Westchester County and New York City, is excited to announce its successful partnership with Make-A-Wish Hudson Valley in hosting the inaugural Make-A-Wish Hudson Valley Holiday Lights Express.

This heartwarming event spread holiday cheer and brought joy to the hearts of extraordinary ‘wish kids’ and their families.

Make A Wish Hudson Valley

Make-A-Wish Hudson Valley works to grant the wishes of children diagnosed with critical illnesses, providing them with hope, strength, and unforgettable experiences. In the United States, Make-A-Wish fulfills a wish every 34 minutes, profoundly impacting the lives of children and their families.

The Make-A-Wish Hudson Valley Holiday Lights Express, presented by Silver Star Transportation, took place on December 5th. The event started with a delightful party at the Wish House in Tarrytown, New York, where wish kids and their loved ones were treated to hot cocoa, seasonal treats, and a special visit from Mr. and Mrs. Claus. Then, the night’s highlight was the distribution of magic tickets and a roaring announcement of “all aboard” when the families boarded the Express to Dyker Heights Holiday Lights to take in the neighborhood’s famous holiday decorations.
