CATHEDRAL CITY, Calif. - You have a chance to see a local family compete in ABC's show, "The Great Christmas Light Fight," on Monday at 9 p.m.
You'll see the same Christmas light show you know and love (at 68000 Estio Road in Cathedral City) -- just 50,000 lights brighter; a chance at winning a reality show sure 'upped the ante', for creator Mike Simmons.
"ABC contacted us after they saw us on the internet. They asked us for a demo video and we sent it to them right away and we found out we were chosen to be one of the 20 in this competition reality show," said Simmons.
Five winners each get $50,000. Simmons said, if he wins, he plans to give $10,000 to the charity he raises money for all season long; Find Food Bank.
"The money would be very helpful not only for us a family, maybe we can go on a vacation, but $10,000 to Find Food Bank, that equates to 70,000 meals, which is huge. It almost would be able to feed all the hungry people for a couple months in the valley," Simmons said.
If you want to root for Simmons in 'The Great Christmas Light Fight', tune into ABC at 9 p.m. Monday, December, 16.
