NEWRY, Maine (AP) - A bunch of Santas are taking a break from toy-making to hit the slopes at a Maine ski resort.

Nearly 300 skiers and snowboarders decked out in red and white were gathering at the Sunday River resort for the annual "Santa Sunday" event.

Spokeswoman Darcy Morse says 292 of them pre-registered.

The 13th annual event raises money for the Bethel Rotary Club's annual holiday toy drive.

Those who registered have to show up in a Santa outfit and donate $10 or more to the toy drive. Participants get to ski free for the day while also receiving another lift ticket good through Dec. 14.
