The 26th Annual Ted Arbo Toys for Tots Holiday Party will be Saturday, Dec. 8 from 5 to 8 p.m. at The Foundry at Summit Pond, formerly The Grist Mill.
Guests are asked to bring an unwrapped toy as a donation and the event will feature a raffle with all proceeds going to charity.

Raffle items include local restaurant gift certificates, lodging packages, ski and snowboard gear and apparel, Killington golf and ski packages and more.
Guests will receive one raffle ticket in exchange for each toy donation and additional raffle tickets may be purchased at the door.
