We hope you haven’t made plans yet for this Thursday night, Dec. 12, around nine. If you have, they better include dressing up in an ugly Christmas sweater and coming out to the Randy Houser concert at Toby Keith’s I Love This Bar & Grill. We’re warning you: You don’t want to miss this exciting night and the opportunity to benefit Operation Santa Claus.
Tickets are just $25 for entrance to the concert and Ben and Matt’s “Ugly Holiday Sweater Party” presented by KNIX 102.5. Part of the night’s proceeds will benefit the 12th annual Operation Santa Claus.
In case you’re just tuning in to our blog, Operation Santa Claus is a fundraising event that benefits the kids and families in our Valley community during the Christmas season. Until December 19, Sanderson Ford, Sanderson Lincoln, ABC15 and various UPS locations will be collecting toy, children’s clothing, food and financial donations.
Those donations will be disbursed among St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance, Ronald McDonald House Charities of Phoenix, Inc, Military Assistance Mission and The Southwest Autism Research and Resource Center.
The second annual Claus-A-Thon, presented by ABC15, raised $376,613 on Dec. 3.
Really, with everything going on at Toby Keith’s, where else would you be on Thursday night?
