 Jerry-The only better than getting the perfect gift at Christmas is giving it.  You can help struggling parent in the DMV do that the Salvation Army's Angel Tree Project.  
This evening from 3:00 to 7:00 p.m. join Johnny and Stacey Stone from the afternoon show as they broadcast live from Potomac Mills Mall in Woodbridge.  They'll be set up right beside
Angel Tree in "Neighborhood 5" of the mall right in front of the "Off Saks 5th Avenue".  If you navigate to the Costco in Woodbridge, you'll be right by the correct entrance.  In addition to 
the broadcast, we're having a free concert with "Stars Go Dim" lead singer Chris Cleveland.   He'll be doing "Stars Go Dim" favorites like "You Are Loved" as well as some classic sounds of the season.
And we're doing all of this to collect toys for kids in homes that are struggling right here in the DMV.  These toys will go to parents who can give them to their kids for Christmas.  Bring toys and gifts for kids from toddler age up to age 12 with you or take a tag off the Angel Tree and shop for a specific kid right on site.  Either way this is a great way to celebrate the season by giving back to the little ones in our community.  Hope to see you this evening in Woodbridge!

Blanca- If you're like me, you've seen the movie or read the books but never seen it live, now is our chance!  Tickets start at $31.
