Little Venice Restaurant's annual holiday toy drive dinner is scheduled for the middle of next week.

Those who bring a new or gently used toy that is unwrapped can receive a spaghetti dinner for $17 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, November 29th. The meal includes a small salad, spaghetti and meat log, and beverage.

Black Bears players will act as celebrity servers and to help collect the toys. In addition to the players, St. Nick will also be on hand for photos.

The toys and gift cards are being collected for Broome County children ages 0-18 and will be distributed to Outreach Ministries/Showers of Hope. Registered families can then shop for their children from the collected toys.

Outreach Ministries anticipates over 1,000 children registering this year, which would be the most ever.

Reservations will not be accepted as guests will be seated on a first-come, first-serve basis.
