NICEVILLE, Fla — The Geek Lights on the Corner Lights and Music Show recently presented $7,086.28 to Crisis Aid for Littles and Moms – C.A.L.M.
The amount is the sum of visitor donations collected during the recently completed 13th season of the Geek Lights on the Corner, which took place at the corner of Bluewater Blvd and Antiqua Way from November 30, 2020 to January 6, 2021.
“I want to thank everyone who made donations,” said Jeff Werner, proprietor of the show. “Your amazing generosity shattered every previous donation record that we had. This is your donation, not mine, and I’m proud of how much you’ve helped C.A.L.M. to do their mission.”
C.A.L.M. is an all-volunteer organization with the self-proclaimed mission to “break the generational bonds of poverty for single Moms and their children in Northwest Florida.”
The organization operates a transitional home in Niceville, where eligible moms go through a 5-month course to learn how to live independently and then transition into a new life.
The Geek Lights consists of Christmas lights and other Christmas-themed display elements, all under computer control and synchronized to stories and music. The show is the technical wizardry of Jeff Werner, the “Northwest Florida Geek” and Wendy Werner, his “Spouse Peripheral”.
Jeff is author of the weekly computers and technology Q&A column “It’s Geek to Me,” which appears on Saturdays in the Northwest Florida Daily News, online at ItsGeekToMe.co, and in other newspapers across the country.
