ActivEntrepreneur's Jennifer Ross talks to Joe Weiss, CEO of Awixa Castle Charities.  In 2000, Weiss and his wife renovated Awixa Castle and decorated it every year since for Christmas.  It takes nearly two months to hang all 250,000 lights around the house and property.  Each weekend of December, the Weiss' open their home for the public to see in order to raise money, food, and clothing for local residents in need.  Money also goes to the Kiwanis Camp programs.  Visit the Awixa Castle at 47 Awixa Street in Bay Shore, Friday through Sunday in the month of December.
