Bristol Light Show Benefits Teen Fighting Cancer

November 27, 2015

Rob and Lori Osenkowski put on a spectacular Christmas show every year with more than 10,000 lights choreographed to music for an hour long show, all for a meaningful cause. Osenkowski had never met the Colasanto family (from Terryville), but that didn’t stop them from spreading the holiday giving spirit to make a difference. Kristi Colasanto’s 17 year old son was diagnosed with AML Leukemia last April, and when the Osenkowski’s found out they knew exactly where they wanted the holiday donations to go to.

Kristi Colasanto told Channel 8 news, “I don’t know them. I got a message on Facebook one day, ‘We heard about Christopher’s story, can we do this for him?’ It’s amazing.” All of the donations from the light show at the Osenkowski’s will benefit Christopher as he fights Leukemia. Last year the Osenkowski’s brought in $3,000 in donations for a brother and a sister who had lost their parents to a murder-suicide. It is the giving season and Osenkowski have gone above and beyond what it means to embody the holiday spirit. Located on 111 Rosewood Drive in Bristol, stop by for the spectacular light show, and donate towards Christopher’s fight! They are also collecting canned foods for the local food bank.

Thank you Rob and Lori Osenkowski for showing what it truly means to be ALL HEART!
