The 17th annual Christmas Giveaway in Garden City will benefit a dozen families in the community, as well as hundreds of children.
The event is organized by the Garden City Police Officers Association and volunteers from the community. On Dec. 22, children in the city will receive toys during a parade around town (Santa on a fire truck), and 12 families will receive a Christmas meal, food for two weeks and presents.
The Garden City Chamber of Commerce holds a raffle to help raise money for gifts. Raffle prizes this year are a 50-inch LED HDTV (donated by Walmart) and a Kindle Fire (donated by the chamber). Raffle tickets are $10 each.
The drawing will be live Tuesday at the chamber’s monthly luncheon at the Riverside Hotel, 2900 W. Chinden Blvd. To purchase raffle tickets, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call Lisa, 869-7946. Read more: Garden City Chamber of Commerce.
