Random Acts of Kindness

In the spirit of the Christmas Star, throughout the month in the Pittsburgh area, our helpers will be performing random acts of kindness.

However, if you've been a recipient of one of these acts, please visit our Facebook page to tell us how you paid it forward!

Laser Rendition of the Christmas Star Commercial

In honor of the commercial's 30th anniversary, our friends at Lightwave International orchestrated a laser rendition of the commercial, which was shown at the Santa Spectacular during Pittsburgh's Light Up Night. In case you missed it, one of our fans sent us the video below. Check it out!

Thank you Eat N Park for the wonderful commercial!
Western PA is known for many traditions and one of them is waiting for the Christmas Season to begin when the commercial airs.
My daugher was 4 years old when the commercial first aired and now we are watching with my grand daughter. Please continue this tradition.
