CRESTVIEW — A $320 donation from the Neville family's synchronized Christmas light-and-music show will keep Special Olympics Okaloosa County athletes looking stylish, officials said.
The family dedicated Saturday's final, 32,000-light display in the Shoal Lake neighborhood to the organization. Money the family collected will help cover the cost of new uniforms for the athletes, Kim Christopher, director of the Special Olympics in both counties, said.
The occasion marked an end to seven years of Watts Up Crestview — at least, in the Shoal Lake neighborhood, Matthew Neville, a technical sergeant at Hurlburt Field, said. The family, with a baby on the way, wants to relocate within the city to a larger household.
The public event allowed officials and athletes to spread the word about the games in the community, Christopher said.
