Thumbs up to the true unofficial start to the holiday season. The seventh annual Toys for Tots Charity Ball will be held tonight at the Robert H. Jackson Center, 305 E. Fourth St., Jamestown, to raise money for the county's Toys for Tots drive. Last year, about 2,340 children received toys from Toys for Tots. Tickets to the charity ball can be purchased for $25 per person. Besides The Resource Center, sponsors of this year's event include Bair's Pizza, Chautauqua Connections Inc., the Greater Woodlawn Federal Credit Union, the Jamestown Gateway Train Station, the Johnson Foundation, Moore and Myott, LLP and Premier Consulting Associates.
