Hanks Animated Light Show to raise money for Baby Olivia

To show support for Olivia Coats and raise money for her funeral, the area's popular "Hanks Animated Light show" will extend one more weekend.

12News featured the Hanks family recently on "What's Right in Southeast Texas" for their efforts to raise money for Buckner Children's Village.

Each holiday, over 50,000 lights twinkle in the night during a dazzling show that lights up to the sound of music. All proceeds from donations go to Buckner.

The home is located in the Windemere addition off Highway 105.

This weekend, there will be a donation box at the curb where you can watch the show and place your donations for Olivia's funeral expenses.

The extended hours will be tonight through Sunday from 6 pm until 10 pm each night.

Olivia Coats was born on December 28 at the Medical Center of Southeast Texas. She died four days later at Memorial Hermann in Houston after birth complications. Her family says forceps used during delivery fractured her skull and severed her spine.

Her funeral is Saturday at 2 p.m. at Broussard's Mortuary in Nederland.
