Get Gifted at The Station this holiday season when Mockingbird Station, the pioneer of mixed-used developments in Texas, kicks off its 2007 Hot Holiday Happenings Monday, Nov. 5 beginning at 5 p.m. with Happy Hour specials and dining discounts for adults and children at participating restaurants, followed at 7 p.m. by a free family movie screening in the open-air staging area next to Angelika Film Center & Caf .
This kick-off event is a prelude to The Station's Hot Holiday Happenings, a series of fun events and special offers with a unique themed activity open to the public every weeknight, 5 - 9 p.m., from Nov. 5 until Christmas (excluding Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve).
In addition to these themed weeknight events, Mockingbird Station will act as the Dallas-fort Worth Metroplex hub for the Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium World Record Toy Drive for Toys for Tots the week of Nov. 6-12. Dallas Mavericks Center Erick Dampier is supporting the toy drive and will be involved in special events surrounding it. Toys for Tots, in partnership with Walden Media and Fox Walden's new film, Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium and with the support of national sponsors, Wendy's (NYSE: WEN), Target (NYSE: TGT), and UPS (NYSE:UPS) is aiming to collect more than 12,000 pounds of toys in ten metro-areas across the U.S. (with a goal for each market to collect 1200 pounds) in order to set a Guinness World Record for Largest Toy Drive (determined by weight over the course of one week).
Mockingbird Station is really like no other
shopping-dining-entertainment complex in Dallas a dynamic, energetic
place we hope to entice people to explore and experience for
themselves this holiday season, said Sarah-lynn Jimenez, general
manager, Mockingbird Station.
Toys for Tots has
been a mainstay for decades every year during the holidays, but this
toy drive is a chance to bring fresh awareness and renewed
excitement to a terrific cause, said Staff Sergeant Joe Nguyen,
Head Media Coordinator for DFW-area Toys for Tots.

In addition, it is home to 211 loft-style apartments and 150,000 square feet of office space.
