What a beautiful day of giving at the Christmas Wish Cruise-in and Toy Drive. It's time to take a look back and to share how much money was raised, all to help ensure that every family has a special Christmas this holiday season.

It was an exciting day raising money to help tri-state families on Saturday, November 20th, 2021. There was incredible live music, great food, amazing auction items, and Santa came from the North Pole to help make the fundraiser so successful. 100% of all the proceeds will go directly to families in need this holiday season. So many motorcycles and vintage vehicles showed up with toys for good little boys and girls. It was something to see when everyone started pulling into the Applebee's parking lot.

There were also many people who were just heading out to eat, heard about the fundraiser on the radio, and chose to stop by to eat and to donate. Many brought their children so they could get a photo, and tell Santa what they want for Christmas this year. We appreciate every single one of you that participated and donated.

After you take a look back at the Christmas Wish Cruise-in & Toy Drive, we'll reveal the grand total that was raised to help so many others that need it the most this season.
