The FOX8/Old Dominion Triad Holiday Concerts and Food Drive are celebrating their 36th year, and this time, they're taking on a new format to make a bigger impact on our community.
Traditionally a large, in-person event that united the Triad community, this year's concerts will be exclusively televised on FOX8 and streamed on MyFOX8.com. While we understand that the change in format may be a bit disappointing for those who cherished the festive atmosphere, this change will help reach an even wider audience and generate more support for the Salvation Army's crucial mission.
Throughout December, FOX8 will broadcast 30-minute holiday music concerts featuring talented local musicians. Whether you choose to gather with your family in front of the TV or stream the concerts on your preferred device, we invite you to join us in spreading the holiday spirit.
On December 6 and December 13, tune in at 7:30 p.m. for a delightful musical experience. Mark your calendars for a special Day of Giving on December 20, from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m., followed by an hour of music at 7 p.m. On December 25, start your Christmas morning with two hours of festive tunes beginning at 8 a.m.
Although the format has changed, the spirit of giving remains. We encourage you to participate in this year's telethon on the Day of Giving, taking a moment to contribute to the Salvation Army. Your donations, as always, go directly to the Salvation Army in our community, supporting their mission to provide for those in need.
FOX8 WGHP Vice President and General Manager Jim Himes emphasizes, “The goal every year is to help best serve the needs of the Salvation Army. This year, we are also able to bring more holiday music and increase the accessibility to our viewers and digital users. We are pleased to again partner with Old Dominion to help the Salvation Army achieve their mission in the Triad.”
Join us on the following dates to watch the FOX8/Old Dominion Triad Holiday Concerts:
Let's make this year's celebration memorable and continue supporting our community in the true spirit of the season.
