Light Up Lakeland is a holiday lighting service provided by Looks Great Enterprises (LGE), a company that aims to provide jobs for people who face employment challenges due to their background and poor work history.
The company was founded by Brian Seeley, founder of Gospel Inc., a non-profit organization that serves homeless individuals in the community. Seeley was inspired to start Light Up Lakeland by a friend in New York with a holiday lighting business. Lights, installation, maintenance, takedown, and storage are all provided. In addition to the general labor and lawn care jobs that Gospel Inc. members perform under LGE, Light Up Lakeland provides jobs during the holiday season for men in the community. Light Up Lakeland has provided a number of light installations in the community, most notably Concord Coffee and Grace City Church.
Seeley strives to intertwine his businesses with his ministry in order to provide job opportunities for the people he works with in the community, in addition to providing support for the ministry itself. As a for-profit business, LGE helps to fund housing expenses for Gospel Inc., as well as Repurpose Art Studio, which sells products made by at-risk women who are paid for their work.
