The Enchanted Lantern Program

Enchanted Lantern

YES!  YOU CAN! Help LIGHT the WAY!  Be A “Key Player” Providing a Smile to a Special Needs Child”

In the early days of the Grotto, members would hang a red railroad lantern in the window to indicate the location of their next meeting. This history of the lantern was not forgotten when in 1953 the Grottoes adopted the “Enchanted Lantern” as their emblem to represent each contribution of $50 or more.  The annual sale of Enchanted Lanterns to Grotto members has become the backbone of the Humanitarian Foundation’s fundraising efforts for nearly 60 years.
