The Christmas Wonderland display at Alton's Rock Spring Park saw an uptick in the number people taking the trip through the park during the 2014 Holiday Season. So revenue was up as well, and that means the Grandpa Gang has been able to donate about $36,500 to more than 50 area organizations.
Bob Osburn is head of the Grandpa Gang. He tells The Big Z he was pleased to see more people going through the park last year.

Sharing in the donations provided by the Grandpa Gang are local charities, food pantries, animal shelters, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Alton and Bethalto, and many more.
