98.1 KVET to host annual “Blue Santa Concert for the Kids”
Local Texas Country Artist Cory Morrow to perform —
98.1 KVET is excited to hold this year’s annual “Blue Santa Concert for the Kids” starring Cory Morrow. Kicking off the season of giving, this holiday concert will take place on Friday, November 18th at 10 p.m. at Midnight Rodeo located at the intersection of Ben White Boulevard and Woodward Street. The tickets are priced at $10 prior to day of show or $12-15 at the door.
KVET’s “Blue Santa Concert for the Kids” supports Operation Blue Santa and proceeds from the ticket sales go to the nonprofit organization. Starting in 1972, Operation Blue Santa is a foundation led by the Austin Police Department to provide assistance and share the
Christmas experience with less fortunate residents of Austin by serving families a full holiday meal with wrapped Christmas gifts for each child under 14.
98.1 KVET will also host the “Blue Santa Breakfast” presented by Tru West Credit Union on Friday, December 2 at Hill’s Café on 4700 South Congress Avenue from 6-10 a.m. Proceeds and toys collected at the breakfast will also go Operation Blue Santa as the community
is invited to the free breakfast in exchange for bringing a children’s toy or cash donation . KVET’s own “Bob and Bender” will be hosting the event.
