Bands playing include: Rock Line, Bootleg, Southside Vibe, IconIX and All The Kings Men.

Admission is a new unwrapped toy or gift card with a minimum $10 value or a cash donation.

There will also be a live auction during the evening.

All proceeds will be donated to Deltassist to help children in need during the Christmas season.

“This is one of our bigger events,” said Colleen Danes, community services coordinator with Deltassist Family and Community Services. “Coordinator Angela Hurst is absolutely amazing. The band turnout, the people turnout is so cool.”
Danes said if there are a lot of monetary donations, Hurst goes out and purchases toys.

“She does a lot of the shopping on the side and then they come and drop it off for us,” said Danes. “It’s amazing and we are very thankful she and the other volunteers do this every year.”

The Tsawwassen Legion is located in Century Square (22-1835-56th St).
