Arti Dixson’s 30th Anniversary Holiday Party

December 22, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Arti Dixson’s 30th Anniversary Holiday Party

Thirty years ago we started a party to collect toys for children of The Emmanuel Baptist Church in New Haven, CT

Thirty years later your support and generosity has enabled us to distribute toys to The Immanuel Baptist Church in New Haven, The Hill Health Center in New Haven, The Branford Counseling Center, The Probate Court in Waterbury, The Orange Community Center, Holy Infant Church, The West Haven Community Center, Mikela in West Haven, The Bethel Center in Milford, The Boys and Girls Village in Milford, The Children’s Community Program in New Haven, The Shelton Safe Home, Spanish Community Center of Wallingford and Inspirica in Stamford.

This year, the 30th Annual Holiday Party Party will be held on December 22nd at 5 pm at The Woodwinds located at 29 Schoolground Road in Branford, CT. The advance ticket price is $40.00 along with a new unwrapped toy.  Tables seat 10 or 12 and this price includes dinner with performances from three bands.

This year we are asking for your continued support because still many people are out of work and struggling financially. Those of us who are fortunate have an obligation to help those less fortunate and I truly believe that we are our brother’s keeper!!

You can support best by coming to the event however; if you cannot attend you can sponsor tickets to permit others to attend.  Sponsored tickets will be given away on radio stations in the greater New Haven area. Businesses may be able to also support this event by contributing gift certificates for door prizes. For example: Anthony Yagavanni gives us a Limo ride to give away as a grand prize at the end of the evening valued at $900.00.  The Orange Fence Company donates gift certificates for a swing set or a picnic table, Rumanoff’s Jewelers contribute gift certificates, China Pavilion & MOMO’s restaurants offer gift certificates as well as CD’s that are given away from our gifted musicians.

If you are sponsoring or purchasing tickets, please make checks payable to Arti Dixson Productions and mail to 357 Taulman Road, Orange, CT 06477.   More people at the party translate into more toys and more toys represent more smiles on the faces of children in our communities.

This party has sold out for the past 23 years.   Please order your tickets now!!!
