NICEVILLE — The Geek Lights on the Corner Lights and Music Show recently presented nearly $5,000 to Sharing and Caring of Niceville.


The amount represents the sum of visitor donations collected during the recently completed 12th season of the Geek Lights on the Corner, which took place at the corner of Bluewater Boulevard and Antiqua Way in Niceville from Dec. 2, 2019 to Jan. 5, 2020.


Sharing and Caring is an all-volunteer organization whose mission is to coordinate community efforts to meet emergency needs of individuals and families in the areas of Niceville, Valparaiso and Choctaw Beach.


“Thank you so much to Geek Lights On the Corner for their fantastic donation!” said Claire Jones, President of Sharing and Caring of Niceville in a press release from Geek Lights. “We appreciate all the hard work you put in every year to make our holidays a lot brighter. And thank you to everyone in the community who supported their cause!”


The Geek Lights display consists of Christmas lights and other Christmas-themed elements, all under computer control and synchronized to stories and music.


The show is created by 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.
