Elwood school board member James Tomeo and his wife, Karissa, have rescheduled their weather-postponed holiday display for Friday. (The arrival of a baby contributed, too.)
Originally scheduled for last weekend, the display is now set for Friday from 5:30 to 9 p.m. as a way to honor Tomeo’s late mother, Jacki, and to raise funds for fundraiser for Cohen Children’s Hospital.
The display is set up at 16 Mansfield Lane South, East Northport.
“Karissa and I truly enjoy spreading holiday cheer around our community. There’s nothing like seeing the kids faces light up and families coming by to take pictures and enjoy the season together,” Tomeo said. “There’s no video games, no texting or snap chat, it’s just a special family memory that they get to make. We also love that we get to raise money for a great medical center and enjoy watching our community rally together and support the children.”
Visitors are invited to take photos of the display or with Santa, enjoy hot chocolate and try their luck with raffle baskets.
