VANESSA ANATAINES, MANALAPAN HOMEOWNER, discusses their annual “Lights on Glendale” fundraiser in which she and husband Nick transform their home into a Christmas spectacular with animatronics synched to music. They wanted to give back to the community that rallied around them when Vanessa had cancer four years ago. They raise money for two charities every year. One is a local nonprofit, “We Are Loved,” that provides holiday boxes for foster children, and the other this year is St. Jude. The holiday display raised about $5-thousand last year and will remain up until January 7th.
