toysfortotslogoAbout U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program www.toysfortots.org

The mission of the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program is to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children in the community in which the campaign is conducted.

The primary goal of Toys for Tots is to deliver, through a new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters that will assist them in becoming responsible, productive, patriotic citizens.

The objectives of Toys for Tots are to help less fortunate children throughout the United States experience the joy of Christmas; to play an active role in the development of one of our nation’s most valuable resources – our children; to unite all members of local communities in a common cause for three months each year during the annual toy collection and distribution campaign; and to contribute to better communities in the future.

The principal Toys for Tots activity which takes place each year is the collection and distribution of toys in the communities in which a Marine Corps Reserve Unit is located.  In communities without a Reserve Unit, the campaign can be conducted by a Marine Corps League Detachment or group of men and women, generally veteran Marines, authorized by Marine Toys for Tots Foundation to conduct a local Toys for Tots campaign.  Local Toys for Tots Campaign Coordinators conduct an array of activities throughout the year, which include golf tournaments, foot races, bicycle races and other voluntary events designed to increase interest in Toys for Tots, and concurrently generate toys and monetary donations.

R&B Crooner Bobby Brooks Wilson Performs at the Suncoast Showroom on May 1 and 3



R&B Crooner Bobby Brooks Wilson Performs at the Suncoast Showroom on May 1 and 3

R&B and soul singer Bobby Brooks Wilson will entertain the audience at the Suncoast Showroom on May 1 and 3.

Wilson first made waves in the entertainment community for his remarkable impression of legendary Jackie Wilson – later to find out that the man he emulated onstage was actually his father. Wilson got his start in a talent show performing the James Ingram classic, “Just Once,” and became a regular at karaoke bars. After an impressive performance of the Motown classic “My Girl,” Peter Hernandez of Peter and the Love Notes approached Wilson and invited him to perform with the Hernandez family, including Hernandez’s son, pop icon Bruno Mars.

During a Hernandez family performance, 1960’s rocker Paul Revere of Paul Revere and the Raiders recognized Wilson’s talents and likeness as similar to those of Jackie Wilson, and later recommended him to perform as Jackie Wilson in an impersonator show in Las Vegas.

As his profile for impersonation grew, more and more industry professionals recognized him as a dead ringer for Jackie Wilson, down to his signature laugh; a blood test later confirmed they were father and son.

Today, Wilson performs impressions besides Wilson, including Sam Cooke, Stevie Wonder and Little Richard. His album “It’s About Time” was released in 2012 and includes soulful covers of Jackie Wilson’s “I Get the Sweetest Feeling” and Otis Redding’s “I’ve been Loving You Too Long,” among others.

Showtime each evening is 7:30 p.m. Tickets are available from $15.95, plus tax and fees, and can be purchased at any Boyd Gaming box office by calling 702-284-7777, or by visiting www.suncoastcasino.com.
