Cruisin with Captain Al’s Toys for Tots Car Show

Santa has some extra helpers here on the Coast.

Captain Al’s Steak and Seafood in Gulfport started gathering gifts early at their annual Cruisin with Captain Al’s Toys for Tots Car Show.

The car show had more than 80 participants who brought wrapped gifts for a good cause.

Car winners took home special awards in different categories.

This year, the Marine Corps was prepared, bringing more help and tons of boxes to help organize the influx of gifts.

Along with the car show, the restaurant had a live band, raffles, and games for guests.

Owner Stacey Magnusen say they want to continue to make a positive impact in the community. “Every event that we do here, we have overwhelming support from our community and the people are excited to give back, they are excited to be a part of it. It’s just amazing all the people that come together. That makes you feel good and we just enjoy giving back.”

Captain Al’s is an official drop off point for Toys for Tots as well as here at WXXV. For a full list of drop off sites, visit
