Walmart Joins Thumper for Musical Toy Raiser for 4th year

Walmart stores Inc., the worlds largest retailer has once again joined forces with Omaha musician Craig (Thumper) Samuels in support of the 2009 Smooth Jazz “Toyz 4 Tunez” musical benefit concert for the Child Saving Institute. The concert idea was created by Thumper about 6 years ago as a way to give to children in need. This years show will take place November 19th in Omaha at the Keno King Grand Ballroom located at 65th and Ames Ave. at 7pm (Doors open at 6pm). The Toyz 4 Tunez show is a musical concert performed by Thumper where fans and friends donate toys, clothes, hats, and gloves for admission. The items then go to the children at the Child Saving Institute. A short meet and greet will take place after the 2 hour show. Dinner specials will be available before and during the show. This year Walmart gave Thumper a $1000 check in honor of the show. The stores involvement has grown since the event began 4 years ago. “We think this is a great idea, and are honored to have been included in this event since the beginning.” Said Jamie Thompson, store manager of the Irvington store.
