Proceeds benefiting the Regina Food Bank

Casino Regina is thrilled to be working with multi-talented artist and activist, Tom Jackson, to raise money for the fight against hunger during his December 6 performance at the Casino Regina Show Lounge. All ticket proceeds will be donated to the Regina Food Bank. 

In an incomparable storytelling, plus musical, plus magically inspiring show — one that weaves together anecdotes of Canadian experiences and humanity as richly unique and diverse as the tapestry of our country’s patronage — Christmas 150 is destined to be a must-see event coast to coast.

Hosted by and starring Tom Jackson, Christmas 150 will see the actor, singer and lifetime philanthropist on stage with fellow musical guests CCMA humanitarian and multi-talented entertainer Beverley Mahood, the soulful and selfless Shannon Gaye, Canadian Smooth Jazz Award winner Kristian Alexandrov, and award-winning producer, musician, music director and event producer Tom McKillip for an evening of diverse varietal songs and stories with multimedia visual accompaniment. “It’s a collection of stories and events relative to Christmas that’s inspired me from my travels across Canada,” shares Tom. “It includes music you know, or music you discover that shapes cherished moments of the gift.”

Nationally sponsored by Great-West Life, London Life, and Canada Life, Christmas 150 will continue Jackson’s long-time holiday season tradition of giving back to the communities it visits, with dates in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Newfoundland released so far.

If something about Christmas 150 feels familiar, it’s because — to a degree — it is. For 30 years now, Jackson has toured Canada with his original Christmas creation, “The Huron Carole.” This year, however, it was important to Tom to change up the format, in part to delve deeper into his unique experiences travelling the country sea to sea, and in part “to celebrate the country I live in.”

While the show’s content may stand apart from year’s past, this year’s tour continues to build upon its long-standing tradition of developing uniquely sustainable events that inspire Canada’s corporate community in collaboration with volunteers, fans, and clients of various agencies and food banks to support local beneficiaries in each city visited. The national sponsor ensures the tour reaches each destination, while each city’s beneficiary retains all proceeds from Tom Jackson’s Christmas 150.

Christmas 150 is just one of Tom’s many contributions to the communities around him. His boundless passion for creating and inspiring change has generated more than $200 million in combined monetary and in-kind value for food banks, family service agencies, and disaster relief as a tirelessly active ambassador for the Canadian Red Cross. Tom can also often be found speaking at Walrus Talks and We Day events, making it easy to see why Time Magazine named him one of Canada’s best activists, or why many are moved to tears of joy when Tom speaks, most notably Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Sophie Grégoire-Trudeau on the occasion of honouring 30 great Indigenous Canadians.
