House Full of Toys @ 8pm
Staples Center
Downtown Los Angeles
Tickets to the show are on sale now at AXS.com

Do you have your tickets yet for the 2018 edition of his annual House Full of Toys benefit concert, which will focus on aiding those affected by the devastating wildfires that recently struck multiple areas of California.

The music legend explains he’s partnering with the Entertainment Industry Foundation (EIF) “to raise money in support of all those who suffered loss to the catastrophic fires, to support the amazing firefighters who worked so hard to save lives and homes, and to support the first responders who are always there when we need them.” EIF President & CEO Nicole Sexton adds, “We are deeply grateful to Stevie Wonder for giving the gift of his extraordinary music to support those in need this holiday season.” As part of the fundraising effort, you’re asked to visit MusicforRelief.org/hope, where you can donate money to the EIF’s Fire Relief Fund aiding firefighters and first responders.

The 22nd edition of Wonder’s House Full of Toys concert will take place December 9 at The Staples Center in Los Angeles. As always, concertgoers are asked to bring an unwrapped toy or other gift to help bring cheer to children, people with disabilities and families in need during the holidays. Like other concerts Wonder has been playing this year, the upcoming charity show is being billed as “The Stevie Wonder Song Party: A Celebration of Life, Love & Music.” A full lineup will be announced soon.
