“The holidays can be hard for some people and this year is presenting challenges that we haven’t experienced in our lifetimes,” said Hiway President/CEO Dave Boden. “During these especially difficult times that threaten to steal some of the holiday spirit, Hiway wants celebrate and honor the unsung heroes in our community who unselfishly give of themselves to make season a little merrier for those in need.”

Twenty Hiway Holiday Heroes will be selected during the run of GLOW, which operates for 46 consecutive nights beginning on November 19, 2020 and running through January 3, 2021. Each winner will receive a ticket to GLOW and recognition at the festival.
