Hammerheads Dockside to host tree-lighting party, Toys for Tots event

Hammerheads Dockside restaurant announced this week that they are an official drop-off location for the annual Toys for Tots campaign, sponsored by the U.S. Marine Corps Reserves.

The mission of the Toys for Tots Program is to collect new, unwrapped toys during the months of October, November and December each year; and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children in the community.

On Saturday, Dec. 7, Hammerheads Dockside will be holding a Holiday Tree Lighting Party from 4 to 8 p.m. The staff at Hammerheads Dockside is inviting the community to come out for a night of family fun. The evening will feature a bonfire, free hot chocolate and marshmallows for the kids to roast.

The restaurant will be offering food and drink specials throughout the night, as well.

Those who bring a new, unwrapped toy for Toys for Tots during the hours of 4 to 8 p.m. will receive a $5 Hammerheads gift card as their thank-you for participating in the campaign (with a limit of one gift card per family).

Hammerheads Dockside is located on the bay at Indian River Inlet Marina in Delaware Seashore State Park.
