East Syracuse man’s light show to help feed hungry

— The Koehler family of East Syracuse will be using their annual Christmas light display to benefit Food Bank of Central New York. Jeff Koehler, of 6514 Kermit Lane, has created elaborate and entertaining light displays on his family home for several seasons, and this year he has decided to add a charitable aspect to the production. The synchronized light and music show attracts viewers, and so Koehler is asking that those who come to enjoy his work bring a donation of food or funds for the Food Bank.

The family’s shows will run Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, beginning the day after Thanksgiving and continuing through the year’s end. Show times will be 6:30, 7:30 and 8:30 p.m., and last approximately 25 minutes.

“This is a very creative idea,” said Tom Slater, executive director of Food Bank of Central New York. “Our work depends on support from the community, and the Koehler family is using their unique tradition in a way that will benefit families in our area who need help putting food on their tables.”
