Toys for Shots is an annual fundraiser/holiday party. The primary purpose of this very special event is to collect as many new, un-giftwrapped toys as we can for the Marine's Toys for Tots program. A couple of representatives from the Marines will be present at the event to collect all the donated toys. In keeping with the true spirit of the holidays, your gift of a toy(s) can spread so much joy and hope to a deserving Cleveland area child this Christmas. Last year we were able to collect 16 huge boxes of toys and hope to break that record this year! The Marine's will be prepared with a large truck this year to fit all the toys we expect to donate!
Why the name, "Toys for Shots"? We thought it would entice folks to go out and buy a toy if we offered a free drink in return for their toy (1 toy for 1 shot..."Toys for Shots"). The idea worked and we are happy to offer it again this year. Bring at least one new, un-giftwrapped toy and we will give you a free drink ticket.
Although our purpose is to provide a bit of holiday happiness to children in need, this event is a holiday party! Expect to dance and have a good time, mingle with the crowd, have some holiday cheer, enjoy the food and participate in the raffle. We have an awesome lineup of baskets and items to be raffled off this year, so be sure to bring a few extra bucks to purchase the chinese raffle tickets!
This will mark the fifth year for this event and we have some very high expectations. The event itself has grown each year in donations, gifts and attendance. This year the planning committee is made up of more than twenty people. Not only are we planning on delivering the best Toys for Shots event yet, but we expect this to grow into one of Northeast Ohio's biggest toy drives. We hope you will join us for an amazing night on December 08, 2012.
