Jimmy & Tracy Curiazza
2013 Holiday Light Show
Presented by: Jimmy & Tracy Curiazza
In honor of: Dean Curiazza, (Feb 28th, 1963-Dec 5th, 1967)
Some of you already know how much the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s mission to find a cure for blood cancers means to our family & to those of you just learning about it, thank you for taking the time to visit this page! Team Curiazza held its very first Holiday Light Show LLS Fundraiser in December 2011 to honor my brother Dean who lost his battle with Leukemia in December 1967. We decided to make it our family mission to raise funds year round to honor Dean’s memory in the hopes that one day soon all blood cancers can be cured & those affected by it could be helped NOW.
My memories of Dean are vague although I do sense his presence in my everyday life. I have an image of his smiling face and recall the sound of him crying. Dean was only one of the thousands of children, and adults, battling this disease. Had we had the medical technology and resources back then that we have now, Dean would probably be here with us today…most likely helping his nutty brother hang giant Christmas heads on his house!
The image of Deans smiling face continues to guide me forward in my efforts to help find a cure. That’s when we’ve teamed up with the LLS in the fall of 2011. Their dedication to the patients and families affected by these diseases is nothing less than phenomenal. Great progress has been made and continues to be made in the battle against blood cancers with the support of generous people just like you!
It has been my honor and privilege to work alongside of so many wonderful people who share this common goal of finding a cure. My wife Tracy and I have made many new friends through the LLS and look forward to future events and opportunities to assist them in this goal.
Tracy, a dedicated endurance runner/triathlete, got on-board with the LLS’s “Team in Training” in the spring of 2012. She has personally raised nearly $3500.00 for the LLS throughout her training time and across the finish line of the “City of Oaks Marathon” in Raleigh NC. Tracy trained hard and diligently for that race. I was, and still am, extremely proud of her, (as were our children and family members), as she came across that finish line! Just thinking about all the time that she had dedicated to training for that race... Knowing she was doing it in honor of a brother-in-law she has never met as well as benefitting so many people battling these diseases reminded me of why I’ve married this girl 25 years ago! She's just awesome!
Tracy’s race days aren’t over yet… More to come in the 2014 LLS race line-up!
Now onto this year’s show!
Santa, Rudolph, and Frosty have been hard at it 7 days a week starting December 14th through January 10th from 6:00p to 9:30p weeknights, and until 10:30p weekends. They are scheduled for extended concerts Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and New Year's Eve, (or until our neighbors shut off our electricity...).This merry trio of wire, lights, and holiday magic will be delivering some of your favorite Christmas and Holiday tunes so if you're in the area, please stop by and enjoy the show.

My little ones constantly ask me, "Dad, do you believe in Santa Claus"? Without hesitation I sincerely reply, "You better believe it"!
There is without a doubt a spirit that comes to life, (this time of year especially), that graces us all with some sort of kindness and love for humanity. Call me crazy, naive, whatever; I prefer to think of it as “Santa Claus”!
Our intentions are to humbly request that donations be made to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society for the enjoyment of this Holiday’s Light Show. Whether donations are made through this web-site, in person, or via YouTube and social media network programs, together we can make a difference.
All donations will go directly to the LLS. We do not accept any funding for this show.
Please join us in our efforts to help the so many patients and families in their battle to find that cure!
May God bless you and your family this Christmas Season!
