The Beaumont-based nonprofit Little Wishes Big Hearts program is collecting toys to distribute to more than 200 young people around the Pass area community, and will host a free event between 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. the afternoon of Dec. 11 at the Beaumont Civic Center.

It was mostly adults who were gallivanting at the Boys & Girls Club’s clubhouse last weekend, as they participated in a cheesy (“cheesy” in a good way) fundraising event that combined some old-fashioned games with lots of chances to win not-so-cheesy prizes.

In its second year of being hosted in Banning, the city’s growing film community drew nearly 300 visitors to the Prestige Film Festival, which took place at Fox Cineplex and the Station Taphouse last weekend.

After being held at the Grange for 29 years the Beaumont-Cherry Valley Recreation and Park District’s annual Winterfest will be moved to Noble Creek Park this year to give it space to grow. The free community event will be held Friday, Dec. 2, and Saturday, Dec. 3.
