A Margaritaville Christmas

Children receive gifts courtesy of Sidney the Parrot, the official mascot of Margaritaville at Lanier Islands, at a recent Toys for Tots event. As part of an admissions promotion for Magical Nights of Lights, more than 2,700 toys were collected for two weeks in early December for Toys for Tots.

Additionally, more than 1,600 pounds of canned food were donated by visitors to Lanier Islands for the Georgia Mountain Food Bank. For many years, Lanier Islands has collected toys and canned food for area charities. “In the tradition that Virgil Williams began many years ago, Margaritaville at Lanier Islands continues this important community program,” said Kelley Wilson, director of sales and special events for Islands Entertainment. “John Lush, our chief operations officer, decided early on that this was a must-do event for the holidays.”
