(Apple Valley)– Liberty Utilities Apple Valley (Liberty Utilities) invites the local community to Tom Schibusch’s 7th Annual CHiPS for Kids Christmas Party and Toy Drive on Friday, Dec. 2, from 5-9 p.m. at Gators Sports Bar and Grill at 21041 Bear Valley Road in Apple Valley.

Community members who attend the free event and donate an unwrapped toy will have the opportunity to visit with Santa and Mrs. Claus, actors Robert Pine and Larry Wilcox from the “CHIPS” television series, and Geri Jewell from TV’s “The Facts of Life.” All toys collected will be gifted to local children and teens who otherwise may go without a gift during the holiday season.

“We hope the entire Apple Valley community will show up in force, because this really is a wonderful event that’s designed to ensure all of our local children have a gift to open during the holidays,” said Tony Penna, Vice President and General Manager of Liberty Utilities Apple Valley. “There are no words to express the impact Tom Schibusch has made on the Apple Valley community over the years. He and our area’s CHP officers have big hearts and we hope everybody will contribute so they have enough toys to cover all of our community’s children from families with limited resources.”

“I’d like to thank Liberty Utilities and its employees for helping to promote this event,” said Schibusch. “Bring a toy, bring your friends and bring your holiday spirit. All toys that are collected at the event will be presented to our local CHP office, so all donations will benefit kids in our community.”
