Recording Artist Drake to Collect Toys at Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza


First 100 people to donate unwrapped toy receive autograph from Drake; five additional fans selected to attend private meet-and-greet

Santa Claus will get some help on Saturday, December 5 from recording artist Drake (Cash Money/Young Money/Universal/Motown) who will make a special appearance at Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza in the Sears Court at 1 p.m.

In support of the 8th District’s Winter Wonderland Celebration 2009 Toy Giveaway and Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza’s Giving Tree, Drake will personally sign autographs for the first 100 people who donate an unwrapped toy and five lucky fans will be chosen to attend a private meet-n-greet with the artist.

Hosted by Los Angeles City Councilman Bernard C. Parks, his wife Bobbie, and the Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza, the 7th annual Winter Wonderland Celebration will be held on December 12. The lower level of the Sears parking lot will be transformed into a “snow-village” complete with real snow.

“We are very appreciative of Drake’s support of the toy drive and our efforts to extend the Christmas spirit to children who may not otherwise receive gifts this season,” said Ben Richardson, General Manager of Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza.

Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza is South Los Angeles’ largest shopping center, anchored by Macy*s and AMC Movie Theaters. It is located at 3650 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90008 (at the intersection of Crenshaw and Martin Luther King Blvd).
