COEUR d'ALENE - A Christmas Celebration & Benefit is scheduled Saturday at Calypsos Coffee & Creamery, 116 E. Lakeside Ave.
There will be live music from 3-9 p.m. with Thomas and Padma Rutley and other local artists, including 10-year-old Faith Soltysik. Donations will go to help less fortunate teens and CASA, an organization that helps children and teens in crisis.
