The Princeton High School studio band and jazz ensemble can’t perform in person for their annual holiday fundraiser this year due to the pandemic. But the band will host a virtual event for the fourth annual Jammin’ with Santa, along with a food drive in memory of Princeton resident Stephanie Chorney, who died in September after a long battle with breast cancer. Her son, Julian, performs in the jazz ensemble.
On Saturday, Dec. 19, the food drive will be held from 10 a.m. to noon at the high school at 151 Moore Street. This is a drive-thru event at the front loop at the high school. Bring canned goods in a bag or box, and leave them inside your car for volunteers to collect. Masks will be work by all volunteers.
Canned food donations and money collected on Saturday will be donated to Arm in Arm. Donate six cans of food or more, and receive a free copy of the studio band’s recently released “Princeton Studio Band: The Abbey Road Sessions” CD.
Children are welcome to join you and wave to Mr. and Mrs. Claus from your vehicles. Children will receive a craft bag to participate in some small crafts and fun as part of the Jammin’ with Santa virtual event, which will begin online at 1 p.m. on Saturday.
