NEW TIMES Tell us more about the lighting of the palms that’ll be taking place.
HEARTMAN We wanted to add a Californian twist on a classic holiday spectacle, and that would be the lighting of the Christmas tree. We’ve been lighting the palms at the Cliffs for many years now, and we take the opportunity to bring in people to enjoy the festivities with live music and help bring gifts for the Toys for Tots Foundation.
NEW TIMES What will the Cliffs have for the people who will be attending?
HEARTMAN We’ll be having a full bar available, as well as an assortment of delicious food and appetizers. We’ll also be serving free hot cocoa and cider, and have the band Incendio performing that night, too. Incendio is a wonderful Latin fusion acoustic band, which will warm everyone’s heart during our chilly weather.
NEW TIMES What should people bring for the Toys for Tots?
HEARTMAN We ask that people who are attending to please bring an unwrapped toy to donate to the Toys for Tots Foundation. We had a great showing of gifts and presents last year, and we would like to keep that spirit alive in hopes to make Christmas a little more special for those who are less fortunate. The lighting of the palms will start from 4 p.m. and last until 8 p.m., so please bring a gift and enjoy the night with us as we hope to make it one to remember!
