White Christmas December 10-22.

SORRY SOLD OUT!!! Updated December 11…

White Christmas
Winston-Salem Theatre Alliance
Winston-Salem, NC WhiteChristmas

“White Christmas” based on the 1954 film starring Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, Rosemary Clooney and Vera-Ellen follows WWII Veterans Bob Wallace and Phil Davis on their post-war song and dance tour, and their eventual hot pursuit of a beautiful singing sisters duo. Winston-Salem Theatre Alliance actor Mary Isom plays the younger sister Judy Hanes. She’s joined by David Joy who plays Captain Bob Wallace. Based on the beloved, timeless film, this heartwarming musical adaptation features seventeen Irving Berlin songs and a book by David Ives and Paul Blake. Veterans Bob Wallace and Phil Davis have a successful song-and-dance act after World War II. With romance in mind, the two follow a duo of beautiful singing sisters en route to their Christmas show at a Vermont lodge, which just happens to be owned by Bob and Phil’s former army commander. The dazzling score features well known standards including Blue Skies, I Love A Piano, How Deep Is the Ocean and the perennial favorite, White Christmas. WHITE CHRISTMAS is an uplifting musical worthy of year-round productions.

Music and Lyrics by Irving Berlin
Based Upon the Paramount Pictures Film Written For the Screen by Norman Krasna, Norman Panama and Melvin Frank
Book by David Ives and Paul Blake

The Holiday Concerts sponsored by FOX8 and Old Dominion Freight Line have provided The Salvation Army with food to help feed those in need. Millions of cans of food have been collected since 1987. This is the 27th year for the Greensboro concert, the 25th year for the Winston-Salem concert and the 8th year for the Burlington concert. In total, we have collected 6.7 million cans for families across the Piedmont.

This is the largest and most important food raising event of the year for The Salvation Army. Last year, over 20,000 people where served.

Annually, over 17,000 people attend the concerts. In 2013, we collected over 468,000 cans of food with 30 companies participating in the Holiday Food Drive.

food-driveFor years, the Holiday Concerts have been held at the Greensboro Coliseum, Lawrence Joel Veteran Memorial and in Burlington and are a proven tradition offering quality holiday entertainment. The Concerts invite families to attend an evening of music provided by the Greensboro and Winston Salem Symphony’s. The “cost” to attend is a can of food.

In recent years, the need in the TRIAD has exceeded the cans collections at the concerts. That is why FOX8, Old Dominion Freight Line and The Salvation Army are reaching out to local businesses to participate in an eight week campaign culminating with the Concerts (Winston-Salem: December 13, Greensboro: December 14, Burlington: December 19).

Dixie Classic Fair History and Facts

dcfair1960

The scrambler ride at the Dixie Classic Fair, 1960.

The Dixie Classic Fair Winston Salem is generally held at the beginning of October. It is a ten-day event. The Dixie Classic Fair is an annual fair held in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. The fair takes place every autumn on the Dixie Classic Fairgrounds (formerly known as the Forsyth County Fairgrounds), which is part of the Winston-Salem Entertainment-Sports Complex; the grounds are located adjacent to the Lawrence Joel Veterans Memorial Coliseum. 371,219 attended the 2007 Dixie Classic Fair, which was a new attendance record. This attendance record elevated the Dixie Classic Fair to the 50th largest attended Fair in North America.

The fair began in the former town of Salem as a grain exposition in 1882 (2007 was the 125th anniversary). In 1897, the Piedmont Tobacco Fair was started and shortly thereafter the two events merged to form the Winston-Salem Fair. The fair moved to its current fairgrounds in 1952 and changed its name to the “Dixie Classic Fair for Northwest North Carolina” in 1956. Today, the event is most commonly known as just the Dixie Classic Fair.

There is a wide variety of entertainment and activities that are suitable for the entire family. Rides, games, livestock competitions, wine tasting, and arts and crafts workshops are just a few of the reasons why Dixie Fair 2014 will be better than ever. ~Scott Ray

Triad Holiday Food Drive

food-drive-logo-41

The Holiday Concerts sponsored by FOX8 and Old Dominion Freight Line have provided The Salvation Army with food to help feed those in need. Millions of cans of food have been collected since 1987.

This is the largest and most important food raising event of the year for The Salvation Army.  Last year, over 20,000 people where served.

For years, the Holiday Concerts have been held at the Greensboro Coliseum, Lawrence Joel Veteran Memorial and in Burlington and are a proven tradition offering quality holiday entertainment. The Concerts invite families to attend an evening of music provided by the Greensboro and Winston Salem Symphony’s.  The “cost” to attend is a can of food.

In recent years, the need in the TRIAD has exceeded the cans collections at the concerts.  That is why FOX8, Old Dominion Freight Line and  The Salvation Army are reaching out to local businesses to participate in an eight week campaign culminating with the Concerts  (Winston-Salem: December 13, Greensboro: December 14, Burlington: December 19).

How your business can help:

  • Create an internal food drive – asking employees to participate and in turn provide them with special incentives if they do.
  • Choose a period of time and ask your customers to donate canned food, offering them a discount if they do.
  • The goal of each participating business should be a minimum of 15,000 cans of food or at least $5,000 which The Salvation Army will use to purchase food (3 cans of food for every dollar collected).

Examples to consider:

  • A team building event- create teams internally – be creative, set a goal and the team with the most cans wins bragging rights and an incentive (vacation day?)
  • Top Dog for a Day.  Sell tickets internally to have the winner be the Leader of the business for a day.
  • A company wide bake sale (or if applicable open to the public)
  • A company wide yard sale (or if applicable open to the public)
  • Host a golf tournament
  • Wine tasting event
  • Sell raffles inside your company – the winner to receive prize of your choice
  • Host an Auction
  • For retail/quick serve restaurants – ask customers to bring in canned food for a discounted offer off their purchase, include a  donation box on counters.

Exposure for the Triad Holiday Food Drive and participating businesses:

  • FOX8 will include your business on the Triad Holiday Food Drive page housed on myFOX8.com (triadholidayfooddrive.com).  This will showcase each business participating in the Triad Holiday Food Drive and how they are helping to feed the needy in our community.
  • Turn Key for your business – The Salvation Army will drop off boxes and pick up from your business if required.
  • FOX8 will create multiple announcements encouraging businesses to participate, this message will run in high profile areas on FOX8.  In addition, FOX8 will include social media posts encouraging participation.  We will include the triadholidayfooddrive.com link in all pushes.
  • In addition to the exposure on the triadholidayfooddrive.com page, each business will receive exposure on myFOX8.com and with social media; highlighting your business and all participating businesses.
  • All participating businesses will be listed in the Holiday Concerts program.  Over 15,000 programs printed.
  • At the conclusion of the Holiday Concerts, FOX8 will create one message recognizing all participating businesses.  This message will air on FOX8 and Antenna TV during December and January.
