DECEMBERCHILD BIRTHDAY BENEFIT                                   Click Here to Buy Tickets

A special Decemberchild birthday party will be held for people of all ages born near the holidays, their families and their friends. The birthday celebration will benefit Toys For Tots, and begins at 7:30PM on December 2, 2005 at The California Center for the Arts, Escondido, 340 N. Escondido Blvd., Escondido. Admission is $17 plus a new, unwrapped toy to donate to the Toys For Tots program. There will be free birthday cake served at the party. A raffle will be held for the chance to win an MP3 player, an electric guitar, and more. Children are welcome, but must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Children 12 and under are admitted free of charge with paid adult admission.

Through a shiny new toy at Christmas, Toys for Tots delivers a message of hope to needy youngsters that will motivate them to grow into responsible, productive, patriotic citizens and community leaders. Representatives of the Toys for Tots program will be present to collect toys and answer questions.

Live music will be provided by Superior Olive, known for artful rock originals and classics and The Cathryn Beeks Ordeal, known for their groove-based acoustic rock. Superior Olive’s lead vocalist and guitarist Tom Savell, a "Decemberchild" organized the benefit "I remember one year getting no birthday party/cake, and "combination" Christmas/birthday gifts. Afterwards, I begged my parents to start celebrating my birthday on June 21st instead. I wanted it to be as far away from Christmas as possible. My parents refused. So many people have had similar experiences. I wanted to have a birthday party for all of us."

Advance tickets are available at The California Center for the Arts ticket office (800) 988-4253 and through Ticketmaster. Tickets may also be purchased at the door.

Teaming up with Tom are brothers Jacob and Joel Savell. Their music production company, Still Fumin’ Records, is an organization of recording artists and musicians dedicated to making music and making people happy.
