In an abundance of COVID-19 caution, the Arlington Margarita Society is hosting its annual Margarita Ball outdoors this year. Join the toy drive and celebration from 4pm to 9pm at Levitt Pavilion (100 W Abram St, Arlington, 817-543-4301), benefiting Santa Cops of Arlington, a police volunteer group bringing happiness to Arlington children in need.

The toy-drive portion of the evening starts at 4pm. There will be a drive-by toy drop available for those who are not attending Margarita Ball but would still like to donate a toy. Shopping online through the Amazon Wishlist on the society’s website is another way to participate. You can also make a (tax-exempt) monetary donation at and let the Santa Cops do the shopping.

If you are headed to the ball, you will receive one margarita ticket per toy. (The toys should be new and unwrapped, please.) The Levitt lawn party is from 5pm to 9pm with music by the Party Machine.
