SALISBURY, Md.- The Delmarva Shorebirds, class "A" affiliate of the Baltimore Orioles, will host Cookies with Claus at Arthur W. Perdue Stadium on Saturday, Dec. 8 from 10 a.m.-noon.
The event is free and will take place in the Executive Club at the stadium. Santa Claus and Sherman Claus will be in attendance to get everyone ready for the holiday season. Everybody will have the opportunity to take pictures with Santa Claus and Sherman Claus in front of a Christmas tree in the club. You must bring your own camera to take pictures.
The Shorebirds are encouraging all attendees to bring a new and unwrapped toy, which will be donated to Toys for Tots. All the collected toys will be distributed to less fortunate children locally on Delmarva.
In 2011, the Shorebirds' local Toys for Tots campaign delivered over 10,000 toys to over 5,000 children on the Eastern Shore.
"Cookies with Claus is a great way to get in the holiday spirit," said Shorebirds general manager Chris Bitters. "We want people to come out to the stadium, bring a toy for Toys for Tots, take pictures, eat cookies and just have fun!"
The Shorebirds will serve hot chocolate and cookies. There will also be coloring stations and different activities set up for children.
