GIBSONVILLE, N.C. -- Years after a man lost his brother to leukemia, he and his family are using Christmas lights and decorations to help others in their battle against the disease.
Team Curiazza, led by Jimmy Curiazza, is hosting its 3rd annual Holiday Light Show LLS Fundraiser. The event honors Jimmy's brother, Dean, who died from leukemia in 1967.
The fundraiser benefits the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. The Curiazza family is raising money to help find a cure for blood cancers.
Spectators can see a special light show including Santa, Rudolph and Frosty the Snowman from now through Jan. 10. The show will be from 6 to 9:30 p.m. each day. And, the show runs until 10:30 p.m. on weekends.
The family will not charge any fee for the event, but it is accepting donations for LLS. (NOTE: The Curiazzas will not receive any profit from the event; all proceeds will go to LLS.)
To donate or learn more about this fundraiser, head to the Holiday Light Show LLS Fundraiser website. The page also has links to YouTube videos of some of the light shows.
WFMY News 2's Patrick Wright will be out with the Curiazza family Wednesday morning to show you some of the show and how you can help raise money for LLS. Tune into the Good Morning Show from 4:30 to 8 a.m. for more on this story.
