Santa photos, games, crafts, entertainment and more are on the go Sunday at the Langley Events Centre at the Basics for Babies FUNraiser.

New this year was shinny hockey with teams by Chad Brownlee and Dallas Smith.The scrimmage will feature the two Langley country stars – who also tag team each summer to host the Boys of Fall charity golf tournament at The Redwoods Golf Course. This was their third year of golf, which raised more than $100,000 for the same cause.

Many of the popular features of their FUNdraising Day are back again, as well. Those include a full line up of live performances, jousting, bouncy castles, video games, human hamster balls, a tumble bus, balloon art, and kids crafts.

This event, now in its third year at LEC, is one of the largest fundraisers of the year for Basics for Babies which has been going for more than two decades. It attracts about 5,000 people, and last year raised $42,000 for the cause.

Admission is by donation. The event runs 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
