Local Family Donates Christmas Lights to Baton Rouge General Medical Center

Jason Landry, Vice President of Gage Telephone Systems, along with his wife Karen announce the donation of their cherished Christmas light display to The Baton Rouge General Medical Center. The Landry’s annual Christmas display has been a highlight in the community for nearly 30 years.

“We couldn’t have picked a better home for them. They share the same Christmas passion and can continue to bring so much joy, especially to those in the hospital.” said Karen Wood Landry.

The Landrys say their annual light display at their Prairieville home has been a labor of love, and they are thankful for the love and support over the years. Footage of the display from previous years can be seen here.

The lights will join more than 400,000 twinkling lights, candy canes, snowmen, gingerbread kids, and a 24-foot walk-through holiday lights tunnel.

When Jason first approached us, we were blown away by both the size of his light collection and his generosity in wanting to give them a new home,” said Erik Showalter, president of the Baton Rouge General Foundation. “His donation brings a new experience for the thousands in our community who visit Holiday Lights at Baton Rouge General each year, and we are thrilled that he has helped us continue to spread holiday cheer.”

The public can see the 5th annual Holiday Lights display at the Baton Rouge General on Bluebonnet this Christmas season.
