102.3 XLC is joining forces with Toys For Tots and the Salvation Army this holiday season to support local families and children in need.
Join us for our annual toy drive event at our All Day Holiday Celebration on Friday, December 8 at Gurnee Mills, in their Show Court, located at Entry G, by Floor & Decor.
The event begins with a toy drive drop-off from 5 am with Jimmy & Lisa and continues until 7 pm when we’ll have our tree lighting ceremony.
We’ll have entertainment, crafts, goodies, raffles, giveaways, plus our Caroling For Cash high school choirs performing where we’ll announce the winning choir program that will receive $1,000 from Gurnee Mills!
