Today, music icon Stevie Wonder announced his House Full of Toys Benefit Concert will return to the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Dec. 17. The musical celebration will mark the event’s 24th iteration with the purpose of giving gifts to children, people with disabilities and families in need.
“Today, more than ever throughout the world, we are challenged with many issues. social, political, economic and spiritual, but that must stop our opportunity to give and share in the spirit and reason for the season,” Wonder wrote in a press release. “I am, as always, overjoyed to again present the celebration of House Full of Toys.”
Like previous years, concertgoers are asked to bring an unwrapped toy or gift to the event, which will be handled by Wonder’s We Are You Foundation. As no goods or services will be provided in consideration of the gifts, they will be 100% tax-deductible.
