Helping The Community When It's Needed The Most

Winston-Salem, NC, October 31, 2022– On Fri., Dec.2, Twin City Santa will host its 19th annual Toy Drive and Semi-Formal event at the Millennium Center in downtown Winston-Salem from 8:00 p.m. to Midnight. The annual event marks the start of the season with friends, tunes, and then flavors of the triad.

In exchange for an admission ticket ($35 per individual pre-sale online or $40 the day of) AND a new, unwrapped toy donation, attendees will celebrate the holiday season with a night of live entertainment provided by Winston’s own DJ HEK YEH. VIP ticket holders, special guests, and sponsors get access to a one-of-a-kind speakeasy. Options are available for those that would instead not bring a gift or do not have the time to go shopping. There will be complimentary beer, wine, soft drinks, and light Hors d’Oeuvres donated by local restaurants and businesses. In addition, a cash bar will be available.

“Residents of the Winston-Salem and Forsyth community have continued to, year over year, double their contribution and bring holiday cheer to children in need,” said Twin City Santa organizer Wake Wagner.

“In a year where so many parents were on edge about the economy and the rising cost of living, the kids and parents in our community need a break.”
