Comedy in King

A HUGE thank you to everyone who bought tickets and supported Christmas in King’s 2024 Comedy in King event at the Kingbridge Centre in King City on March 22. The night was a huge success, bringing in close to $12,000, a 35 per cent increase from last year’s show. The monies raised from the event will be used this coming December to provide seasonal support to close to 600 people in our community. Christmas in King (CiK) is run entirely by volunteers with a mandate to offer everyone in King Township a happy holiday season. Christmas in King reaches beyond the King Township Food Bank, as many families manage for 11 months but December tips the scales. Many of the CiK volunteers are also food bank volunteers, so there is a close association.

The event wouldn’t have been possible without the generous support of sponsors IG Private Wealth Management – Spence & Associates, Nicola Institutional Realty Advisors, Schomberg Dental & Orthodontics (for the second year!) and IPG Renewables. Hockley Valley Brewing Co. kindly provided all of the evening’s beverages.👏👏👏

What is Christmas in King?

Christmas in King (CiK) is run entirely by volunteers with a mandate to offer everyone in King Township a happy holiday season. We know that many people manage without support for 11 months of the year, but December can tip the scales severely. You do not need to be registered with the King Township Food Bank to receive CiK benefits.

CiK is a separate organization, but relies on the support of KTFB; the two organizations partner to share holiday cheer with all who let us know we can help.

Early gifts received with some of the volunteers at St. Mary’s Church who organized and distributed gift tags. Over 100 gifts for children in the list of requested items were donated by the congregation. That was 6 carloads! An amazing undertaking and greatly appreciated by the committee who had a record number of requests for assistance this year.

Christmas in King was overwhelmed by the very large number of gifts from the Annual King Chamber Toy Luncheon. All have been assigned to families across King, with guaranteed smiling faces Christmas morning. In addition, the raffle of the centrepieces raised nearly $800 in cash. Sincere thanks for this perennial support for an organization that was facing a record number of requests this year.

Breakfast with Santa at Nobleton United Church raised nearly $700 for Christmas in King; funds were used to purchase gift requests. A big shout out to NUC for their perennial support.
