Area band, The S’Aints, is once again joining forces with St. Clair College and Caesars Windsor to “sleigh” hunger with an all-ages, annual fundraising concert on The Colosseum stage on Dec. 21 at 8 pm.

A holiday tradition for the entire family, the show will feature The S’Aints band with lead vocalist Jody Raffoul; Tea Party drummer, Jeff Burrows; Wes Buckley; Kelly “Mr. Chill” Hoppe; David Cyrenne; Kelly Authier; Marty Bak; Liz Robinson; and Stephanie Baker.

The show also features special guests, The Sinners choir, The Horns of a Dilemma, and The Twisted Sisters.

The S’Aints will perform traditional holiday tunes with an upbeat rock edge, including “Last Christmas,” “Run, Run Rudolph” and more.

Organizers said 100 per cent of ticket proceeds stay in Windsor-Essex and Chatham-Kent, benefiting those in need. Now going into its fifth year, the band hopes to build on the success of previous years which have raised nearly $200,000 to feed the hungry.

“The success of this concert is truly a community effort,” Burrows said in a media release. “For every seat we fill in The Colosseum, we know it means more people are being fed and shelves are being filled. This is a collective effort and one that is very close to our hearts.”

Tickets for the Dec. 21 show are $25 plus applicable taxes and will go on sale on Oct. 26 at noon. Box office hours are Friday, Saturday, Sunday from noon to 8 pm and on additional show days until midnight.  Tickets are also available at St. Clair College campuses, Devonshire Mall Guest Services and ticketmaster.ca.
