The holiday season is officially upon us. That means busy days and nights full of shopping, baking, planning, and lots of fun parties. And many of those fun parties are fundraisers for our friends and neighbors in need. Those are the best. Fun for a great cause. And there's one coming up this Saturday night.

Head to Mahoney's Irish Pub and Steakhouse at 35 Main Street in Poughkeepsie this Saturday, Dec. 1, from 5 pm - 9:30 pm for Toys in the Basement, their 2018 Christmas Concert. Your $10 cover includes 1 drink, and proceeds will benefit two great causes, The Sparrow's Nest and Maria Fareri Children's Hospital. You can also bring a new, unwrapped gift to donate for children ages 1 - 18.

There will be 3 great bands playing both rock and roll and your favorite holiday classics. The Chain Gang, Noise in the Basement, and Gary and the Roaches.  For more information about this Saturday's Toys in the Basement Holiday Concert, visit their facebook page.
