Saturday, December 7th - 2nd Annual Holiday Rock Concert & Toy Drive
Hosted by ShockBoxTV and Busby’s East Benefiting Los Angeles Fire Department & ABC7’s 21st Annual ‘Spark of Love’ Toy Drive
This year’s event includes live performances by two Los Angeles based rock bands, The Shakers and Better Off Blonde. “We are so excited to be a part of this event. Raising money for such a special charity is a very heartwarming experience. It is the best way to let the kids know that someone is thinking of them during the holiday season,” says Shannon Hunt and Lauren Tarantino, together forming the pop/rock duo Better Off Blonde.
“I have this great photo from a Christmas past when Santa Clause gave my sister and me Mary Lou Retton leotards. I was such a tiny little thing, but when I wore those I felt like a superhero,” says Jodie Schell, lead singer of The Shakers.
Matt Prater, creator of the event, is hoping for a very successful second year. “Last year’s event was spectacular and brought in a few thousand dollars worth of new toys for children. This year, we’re hoping to see that number increase significantly.”
The cost to attend is a donation of $15.00 (minimum) worth of new, unwrapped toys for children. For more information regarding LAFD & ABC7’s ‘Spark of Love” toy drive, please visit http://abclocal.go.com/
