PLEASANTVILLE, N.J. — Come enjoy a day of holiday fun and frolic at the Pleasantville Music Shoppe (15 E. Black Horse Pike in Pleasantville) on Saturday, Dec. 21, where surprises, special guests and plenty of live music will be going on from noon to 5pm during its annual Toys for Tots collection drive.
The Misfit Toys Band will be performing, as will several other musical guests including Jim Craine and the Atlantic City All-Star Band (pictured below), which includes lead vocalist Craine, pianist Tony DeLuca, drummer Ray Nunzi, bassist Jimmy Hines, guitarist Stan Richards and percussionist Joe Kane.
All guests are welcome, and the only request is that each guest bring a new, unwrapped toy to be donated to less fortunate children by the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve. The Pleasantville Music Shoppe is a certified U.S. Marine Corps drop-off point, and this will be one of the last pick-ups by the local unit of the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve this year.
“And due to Superstorm Sandy last year, there are still a lot of children who were part of families who lost everything who could really use our help,” says Craine.
The U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program strives to help less fortunate children throughout the United States experience the joy of Christmas, and to unite members of local communities in a common cause for three months each year during its annual toy collection and distribution campaign.
